We’re turning up the heat on your artist and science aspirations this week! STEM meets art in this week’s episode (and we don’t mean the stem of a wine glass). Join us as we talk shop with local artist and Bloomington Creative Glass Center founder, Abby Gitlitz. After receiving her Masters of Fine Arts in Glass and working alongside engineers to learn the science of glass at MIT, Abby returned to Bloomington in 2009 wondering if the community was interested in the two thousand year old art of glass blowing. Fast forward 10 years (and many daily drives back and forth from Indianapolis) and Abby now runs the Bloomington Creative Glass Center located on Grimes Lane adjacent to Switchyard Park! BCGC offers a variety of educational glass arts classes and workshops for everyone aged 13 and up, as well as apprenticeship and volunteer opportunities. Learn how anyone (regardless of artistic skill) can take a class and create something beautiful at the Bloomington Creative Glass Studio!
In our Facebook Follow segment, check out Bloomington Parks and Rec! The Bloomington Creative Glass Center is adjacent to Switchyard Park, scheduled to open in late 2019.
