The beauty of art glass was brilliantly displayed at the Dubuque Museum of Art. Since the 1960s, the use of glass as a purely artistic medium has flourished. In Exploring Transparency, works from the collection of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art highlighted art glass from this early period. In addition, over 20 contemporary glass artists from around the United States represented the current trends in art glass, including Hank Murta Adams, Mark Bokesch-Parsons, Barrie Bredemeir, William Carlson, José Chardiet, Jim Cook, Fred di Frenzi, Sheryl Ellinwood, Mark Fowler, Shaun Graves, Wes Hunting, Kreg Kallenberger, Brent Kee Young, Michael Meilahn, Mark Peiser, Stephen Powell, Mike Rogers, Charles Savoie, Paul Stankard, Alex Stisser, Mark Sudduth, and Steven Weinberg.
