This week, The Palm Springs Art Museum presents...
This weekend, the museum will feature a fun and interactive exploration of the exotic world of glass blowing by showcasing the Mobile Hot Shop, a fully equipped glass blowing studio from the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. This is the first time this Mobile Hot Shop will visit Southern California, and attendees to this FREE event (running two days, on Nov. 14 and 15) will experience a complete glassblowing demonstration, with highly skilled artists working with molten glass while a trained commentator explains the art and science of glass and answers questions. A state-of-the-art audio-visual system will enhance the experience, and the audience will share in this right-before-your-very-eyes creative process, holding a collective breath as molten glass is transformed into a work of art.
Also… this weekend…
Reflections of Lino

In conjunction with the Mobile Hot Shop (see the above article), the museum will stage an encore presentation of the popular Reflections of Lino performing arts piece created by the Coachella Valley Repertory (CV Rep) specifically for the Palm Springs Art Museum. This contemporary performing arts piece, based on the life and work of world renowned glass artist Lino Tagliapietra, debuted at the the Annenberg Theater at the museum’s first Free Second Sunday and has been brought back by popular demand. This performance features the talented Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company who will pay homage to Lino Tagliapietra’s work through theatrical lighting, music, dance and narrative.
