Glass Art Featured at WonderLab’s First Friday Evening Half-Price General Admission in Effect


Bloomington, Indiana – Enjoy half-price admission as you explore the art and science of working with glass at WonderLab during First Friday Evening Science of Art on November 1 from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm! Meet and watch artist Abby Gitlitz, president of the Bloomington Glass Guild, as she bends light and creates glass explosions and silica slinkies. Related visitor activities include making edible artwork as a way to learn about the process of fusing glass, creating a polyester film sculpture that is similar to a glass sculpture, and making shrinky dinks. The program is sponsored by F. Rudolf Turner with additional grant support from the City of Bloomington Arts Commission and Ivy Tech Community College – Bloomington, the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Half-price general museum admission ($3.50) will be in effect from 5:00 pm until the museum closes. A small plate meal, freshly prepared by Bloomingfoods, will be available to buy ($2.50) in the WonderLab café. Free parking spaces will be available in the 4th Street Parking Garage. First Friday Evening art exhibition openings at the nearby Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center (corner of S. Walnut and W. 4th St.) include Jiangmei Wu’s Folding Into Light (origami paper LED lights), Mac Fleming’s 1944-45 From War to Peace photographs, Susan Shorter’s Flights of Fantasy acrylic works, and the Ivy Tech Fine Arts Students’ Fall Show.
