RESEARCH TO ESTABLISH A COLLEGE-LEVEL CURRICULUM IN GLASS. TECHNICAL PROGRESS REPORT, NUMBER 2.
WILLSON, RICHARD
THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH IS TO CORRELATE A COLLECTED MASS OF INFORMATION RELATED TO THE ACCEPTED NEED TO ESTABLISH A CURRICULUM FOR TEACHING GLASS AS A FINE ART MATERIAL IN THE UNITED STATES. AN ARTIST OR AN ARCHITECT WHO WISHES TO LEARN THE POTENTIAL USE OF GLASS MUST GO TO EUROPE, AS NO COMPREHENSIVE TEACHING OF GLASS AS A FINE ART EXISTS ON THE AMERICAN TEACHING SCENE. INFORMATION WAS COLLECTED DURING VISITS TO EGYPT AND GREECE, AND TO LOCATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES, SUCH AS DOMINICK LABINO, THE TOLEDO ART MUSEUM, CORNING GLASS COMPANY, OHIO UNIVERSITY, BLENKO GLASS COMPANY, AND SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION. INFORMATION FROM THE EGYPTIAN TRIP WAS PRESENTED TO ADVANCED STUDENTS AND FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI IN JANUARY 1967. ACTIVITIES FOR THE NEXT REPORTING PERIOD WILL INCLUDE FINAL STUDY AND DISCUSSION TRIPS TO GLASS SCHOOLS, INDIVIDUALS, COLLECTIONS, AND ARCHITECTURAL INSTALLATIONS OF GLASS IN GERMANY, AUSTRIA, ITALY, FINLAND, SWEDEN, AND ENGLAND. A DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION WILL BE MADE IN THE FINAL REPORT THAT THE UNITED STATES TAKE STEPS TO SECURE LEADERSHIP IN THIS DIRECTION, AND THE STEPS TO DO THIS WILL BE SPELLED OUT CLEARLY. (MM)
