WMGAC erected a twenty-five-foot kinetic glass sculpture at the Kalamazoo Nature Center. The sculpture is hanging in the Sun-Rain room and reflects the talents of member glass artists. Stop by the Nature Center to see this wonderful artistic display. The West Michigan Glass Art Center presented the KNC with a gift of several stained glass turtles from our summer glass camp's "Public Art Project"! You can visit them in the Tropical Sun-Rain Room at the KNC.
