Adopt a Glass Pet Day
Saturday, September 1
Signings and Adoptions: 1-4PM
Hot Glass Demonstration: 6PM
Join us at The Corning Museum of Glass on September 1, as artist Catherine Labonte hosts Adopt-a-Glass-Pet Day in The Shops. Labonte will be joined by representatives from the Chemung County SPCA who will be on hand to talk about pet adoption from 1-4PM in The Shops.
Known for her curiously cute and thoroughly whimsical glass animal creations, Labonte will be on hand to sign "birth certificates" for all of the glass animals "adopted" during the event. In addition, she will draw a picture of each animal and sign the piece with a name chosen by the adoptive parent.
Complete your day by seeing Labonte work as a guest artist, along with our Hot Glass Demos Team, in a narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop.
Can't make it?
You can purchase any Catherine Labonte glass animal online and Catherine will hand sign the "birth certificate" and personalize each glass pet with the name of your choosing. These pieces will be held until September 1 and will be shipped after the event. Contact us for more details.
