The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass

The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass

The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass, generously funded by The Glick Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation established by Marilyn and Eugene Glick, was built to support and promote the practice of the contemporary glass arts at Ball State University and in the East Central Indiana Region. The center’s studio spaces, equipment, faculty and staff support a broad-based and dynamic undergraduate and graduate curriculum in contemporary glass as well as community outreach and education about the glass arts. General visitors are welcome and encouraged to come into the Front Atrium. Artists are often working in the hot shop and visitors can observe them through the viewing window or examine the glass artworks on display in the cases.

The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass is located on the southwest end of our campus next to Christy Woods and the Rinard Orchid Greenhouse. General visitors are welcome and encouraged to visit. The front atrium at the Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass is open to the public:

Monday – Friday
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Artists are often working in the hot shop, which supports a range of processes including blowing and hot sculpting. Visitors can observe artists through the viewing window, on LED screens, or examine the glass artworks on display in the cases. For liability reasons our working glass studios are not open to visitors without special arrangements.

Time slots for field trips depend on class schedules, campus events, and staff availability. Groups are limited to 30 individuals due to safety requirements in the studios. Visitors should be at least kindergarten age. For safety reasons, only those groups of young children with multiple adults accompanying them can enter our hot shop studio. Campus Map For more information about our future field trip opportunities please contact our Glass Studio Manager, Slate Grove, at 765-285-6620.

Minnetrista

Minnetrista

Minnetrista

In 1887, the Ball family—makers of the famous Ball mason jars—moved their glass manufacturing business from Buffalo, New York to Muncie, Indiana. The Ball brothers (pictured) and their families left a lasting impression on the Muncie community, creating philanthropic organizations (like Ball Brothers Foundation and George & Frances Ball Foundation), an educational institution (Ball State University), and the year-round gathering place of Minnetrista.

The current site of Minnetrista is located on the same property where the Ball family lived. In fact, many of the original Ball family homes stand today; all but one of the brothers’ homes are still standing and they make for a beautiful walk along the Boulevard, and a few are open to the public for various programs and events.

Due to its location along the White River, the family chose to name the property Minnetrista, meaning “a gathering place by the water.” The name is derived from the Sioux word “mna” (pronounced “mini”), which means “water,” and the English word “tryst.”

The origin of Minnetrista as we know it today—a cultural museum and public gathering place—dates back to 1978, when Margaret Ball Petty wrote to her cousin Edmund F. Ball, suggesting that the Ball Brothers Foundation provide a museum in which to exhibit fine art. A four-year study of the cultural needs of East Central Indiana determined that top priority should be given to the construction of a state-of-the-art facility to preserve the cultural heritage of the region. Ground was broken March 14, 1987 and Minnetrista Cultural Center opened December 10, 1988.

Stop by and check out the large collection of Ball Canning Jars on display at Minnetrista.
