KMA Plans First Friday Party Like Never Before – it’s a GLASSBLAST!

KMA Plans First Friday Party Like Never Before – it’s a GLASSBLAST!

We have BIG plans for May’s First Friday – a GLASSBLAST street party in front of the KMA featuring live glassblowing, food, music, and dancing!

The event is part of the highly-anticipated GLASSFEST14 – a celebration leading up to the reveal of the KMA’s largest installation to date, Cycle of Life: Within the Power of Dreams and the Wonder of Infinity, by artist Richard Jolley.

Taking over our block of World’s Fair Park Drive is just the start! Come relax, enjoy wine, beer, food, and most exciting of all the opportunity to witness the beauty of live glassblowing at night.

See live hot glass working demonstrations outside the museum by The Corning Museum of Glass Hot Glass Roadshow, which travels around the world and features artist amongst the world’s experts in glassblowing. During GLASSBLAST witness the stunning and spectacular show after hours!

Food and beverages will be available for purchase including eats from local food trucks Tootsie, Savory and Sweet, Hoof, Dale’s Fried Pies, and Cruze Farm. The evening will also feature cover band Vibraslaps.

This Street Party is for everyone – from those interested in glass art to connoisseurs. It will be a First Friday event like ever before and we can’t wait to share it with you!

The Friday, May 2 GLASSBLAST Street Party will be held from 5-9pm; admission is $20 per person.


Additional information about other festivities commemorating this momentous reveal can be found on the GLASSFEST14 page.
