Brattleboro Museum & Art Center
The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) invites children in grades K-6 to dream up, draw, and submit imaginary creatures for the 2023 edition of GLASSTASTIC, a beloved biennial celebration of youthful imagination and creativity. Submissions are due by December 16, 2022. Guidelines and entry forms can be found at brattleboromuseum.org or picked up in person at BMAC.
Launched in 2011, GLASSTASTIC grew from 250 submissions the first year to over 1,200 in 2018. Each year, professional glass artists from throughout New England give generously of their time and talent to turn a selection of submitted student art into three-dimensional glass sculptures. The most recent exhibition, in 2021, featured 27 fantastical sculptures, including a snoogle, a kelpie, a pegamallow, a preying beetis, and Sheila and Neil, “the first non-flightless snails in the world.” Submissions came from schools across Vermont and New Hampshire and as far away as Washington state.
Every drawing submitted for GLASSTASTIC 2023, including those that are not selected to be made into glass, will be included in the exhibit, which will be on view at BMAC from April 22 through October 9, 2023.
