Glass Studio Tours

The Chrysler Museum of Art and the Perry Glass Studio offer three options for educators and their students—a tour, a demo, or a combination of both. Each can be adapted for any age group or to relate to any subject matter, and each coincides with Virginia State Standards of Learning (SCI5.4, SCI6.4, and PS2). Glass tours and demos also are appropriate for youth camps and adult groups. All tours and demos are free. See available days and times below.

Museum Glass Tour

Chrysler Museum of Art is home to one of America’s greatest comprehensive collections of glass. See highlights from antiquity to Tiffany to contemporary masters in a guided tour of less than an hour.

History and Science of Glass

Investigate history, science, and more through the lens of glass. From the ancient Romans and Egyptians to modern artists, the works of glass in our collection teach not only about history and science, but art, technology, and culture as well. Tuesday–Friday, by appointment. To schedule, please contact Ruth Sanchez at (757) 333-6269 or rsanchez@chrysler.org.

Glass Studio Demonstration

The Chrysler Museum Glass Studio has two different demonstration options for your class. Each can accommodate 80 students (up to 95 with advance arrangements).

Standard offerings include:

Introduction to Glass

Learn about the history and evolution of man-made glass through the millennia. Review the progress of glassmaking through Bronze and Iron Ages to today, and consider contemporary life in the Glass Age. To schedule, please contact Robert Holtzscheiter at (757) 333-6299 or rholtzscheiter@chrysler.or

Science of Glass

Explore several kinds of science through a closer look at glass as both a liquid and a solid. Discover the roles that chemistry, earth science, and physics play in working with this seemingly magic material in this live demonstration. School year: Friday or selected Wednesday, 10–11 a.m. Summer: Tuesday–Friday, 10–11 a.m. To schedule, please contact Robert Holtzscheiter at (757) 333-6299 or rholtzscheiter@chrysler.org.

Combination: Museum Glass Tour and Glass Studio Demonstration

Take a 45-minute guided tour through more than 2,000 years of glass artworks in the Chrysler Museum’s comprehensive glass collection. Afterward, head over to the Glass Studio for a fascinating live glass demonstration that illustrates how these objects were made. School year: Friday or selected Wednesday, 10–11:30 a.m. Summer: Tuesday–Friday, 10–11:30 a.m. To schedule, please contact Robert Holtzscheiter at (757) 333-6299 or rholtzscheiter@chrysler.org.
