Historic Somerville 2015 Local History Lecture Series - Sunday, June 14, 2-3PM

Sunday, June 14, 2-3PM
Kelly Conway, Curator of the Corning Glass Museum

The Art Glass of the Union Glass Company, Somerville, 1893-1927

Located in Somerville, Massachusetts, the Union Glass Company made a wide range of glass over the years, including pressed, mold-blown and free-blown objects in colorless, iridescent, silvered and many colored varieties. This lecture focuses on Union Glass Company’s development of art glass from 1893 to 1927. The majority of known catalogs, correspondence and identified glass relates to this period, including a large range of materials represented in the Corning Museum of Glass.

Kelly Conway is the Curator of American Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass. She lectures extensively on the history of glass and is currently working on a book about American history interpreted through the glass collection at CMOG. Fortunately for Somerville, the history of the Union Glass Company has been a longstanding interest of Ms. Conway and was the subject of her master’s thesis.

The Somerville Museum
One Westwood Road
Somerville, MA 02143
