Conceptualized by artist Joseph Rossano, School is an international, multi-media, traveling art performance and exhibition that casts light on the diminished state of global salmon populations and the habitat on which they depend. The installation features a life-size school of mirrored salmon-like forms, sculpted from molten glass by concerned individuals from around the world, as well as first-hand video accounts from renowned scientists, artists, and indigenous peoples.
Join us for a drawing activity and narrated glassblowing demonstration, all from the comfort of your home! Enjoy brief introductions to the UrbanGlass studio, hear about Joe’s project and goals, and learn a little about how salmon are a symbol of the environment and what we can do together to better protect our world. Enjoy a glassblowing demonstration from the UrbanGlass studios of a glass fish that will join Joe’s larger Salmon School! Free and open to all ages!
Throughout the week, May 18th-21st, you can also join glass studios from around the world for virtual demonstrations in support of Joe Rossano’s Salmon School Project, bringing attention to the power of community to address the global issues. Watch as we grow the School in Australia, England, Ireland, Japan, New York (that's us!), North Carolina, Norway, and Tacoma. Visit our events page to learn how you can participate.
