Making the Ordinary Extraordinary

Exhibition Website

Jul 28 2017 - Nov 12 2017

This collection of artwork finds a common thread through the use of the glass medium and the artists’ ties to the Pittsburgh region. These artists, originally from locations all around the country, were drawn to Pittsburgh by the vision of Pittsburgh Glass Center’s founders’ Kathleen Mulcahy and her late husband Ron Desmett. Making the Ordinary Extraordinary refers to Ron and Kathleen’s belief that an arts organization can transform a community and to the awe-inspiring and eye-opening experience that viewers will have when they see this display of ordinary material through the extraordinary perspective of 15 artists.
