We will be viewing ‘Defying Gravity’ – When the Corning Glass Museum realized their paperweight collection was approaching its 1,000th piece, they wanted to celebrate the occasion with an outstanding piece of artwork. They chose renowned glass artist Josh Simpson and issued a challenge – could he create one of his signature Megaplanets, but make it over 100 lbs? Not only would this be an artistic challenge, but also an incredible technical achievement!
