OPENING RECEPTION WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 30 3-5 PM

CAL STATE UNIVERSITY FULLERTON
MIHAYLO HALL
3RD FLOOR DEAN’S SUITE

FLUID highlights various glassmaking processes by Cal State Fullerton art students and faculty including: stained glass, blown glass and cast glassmaking. Although glassmaking is a centuries old process, only in the last 50 years has contemporary glass been recognized as an art form as well as a craft, and CSUF is one of only a handful of schools in the state to offer courses in glass and has an on site hot glass foundry located behind the visual arts complex.

FLUID is organized by Alyssa Cordova and Heather Richards-Siddons of Sixpack Projects, CSUF Mihaylo College of Business and Economics and CSUF Art Department faculty member Aimee Sones.
