The installation of exhibitions always requires a lot of glass to be moved in a short amount of time. Although our preparators are excellent at moving glass without damage, sometimes gravity happens. During the installation of our Making Ideas exhibition that opened May 19, the fuse was broken off of one of the glass bomb prototypes designed by Steven and William Ladd. Luckily it was just one break and the piece was treated in time for the opening.
If you visit the Museum, look for the bomb in the Making Ideas: Experiments in Design at GlassLab exhibition, now on view through January 6, 2013.
