Dates: October 8, 2010 – ongoing

This exhibit features more than 180 beautiful glass objects from across the ancient world that were made using a variety of methods and techniques, including this 2,000-year-old multicolored cup from Greece. On display are exquisitely crafted juglets, bowls and beakers from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome, many formed in delicate shapes or decorated with brilliantly colored geometric designs. These vessels, which date from 2500 B.C. to the 11th century A.D., provide a vivid illustration of how glassmaking has evolved over the millennia.
