The year 2021 was another amazing time for the members of GLANC! We adjusted to the pandemic by launching our GLANC CONNECTIONS program, hosting our monthly events virtually on Zoom. This allowed us to tour collections, view Museum exhibits, and meet with Maestro artists from all over the world!
Please work with us to continue these special programs by contributing to the GLANC Scholarship and Maestro Program Fund. Your support allows us to:
Provide educational opportunities for San Francisco Area artists.
Bring world-class guest artists to the Bay Area.
Provide funding to non-profit glass organizations for educational programs and special projects.
Member donations are what make our programming and scholarships possible!
