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.
