3 Events You Don't Want to Miss at the WMGAC

Events and Contests

There are some fun events coming up at the West Michigan Glass Art Center, so I thought I'd share...

1. Battle of the Glass Blowers

Friday, April 13, 5 p.m.-10 p.m. and Saturday, April 14, noon-6 p.m.

Battle of the Glassblowers is a high energy glassblowing "battle" in West Michigan Glass Art Center's Hot Shop to create incredible glass blown objects. Winners also receive bragging rights! Fast paced team glass blowing competitions and individual competitions are judged by a panel of esteemed judges from our Kalamazoo community. To pique your curiosity, our timed categories include, Fastest Goblet, Fanciest Goblet, and Mystery Winged Object. Come out and cheer on your favorite glassblower! Event is Free!

2. Glass Art Center Auction

Saturday, April 28, 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

This year's Glass Art Center Auction promises exquisite glass art, entertainment packages and more to delight your artistic soul! The net proceeds from the auction support our scholarship program. Join us for an exciting night of bidding, socializing and snacking. Tickets for the Glass Art Center Auction are $20 per person in advance and $25 at the door. Advance tickets are available on West Michigan Glass Art Centers website.

3. Reflections Gallery Special Member Exhibit, Through the Looking Glass
