COVID-19 Changes and Opportunities

The floods of 2019 and now the Corona Virus have proven to be a challenge in funding our tuition free programs for Veterans and youth. Here is a chance for you to do some good, and of course, you will have something truly special; a beautiful object that celebrates your generosity.

Through April 30, 75% of the proceeds of blown glass sales will help fund tuition free classes for Veterans and underserved youth of the greater Quad City area. The other 25% will be donated to the Quad Cities Community Foundations Disaster Recovery Fund.

As of March 20, 2020 the gallery will be open by appointment only. Our seasonal, “make your own”, classes have been suspended to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We’re keeping the gallery and our building clean and safe so that you can feel confident about scheduling a visit. You can pick work from our gallery or pick something from our online gallery and we will ship it to you! We even have curbside pick-up or local delivery to your front door!

We believe that art can play an important role in your well being. Art enhances your life and provides a positive outlook to your surroundings. Your purchase could make a real difference in the life of a Veteran, student, or local workers struggling to get by.  If you have been wondering how to support our programs or the Quad Cities Community Foundations Disaster Recovery Fund, please consider purchasing glass art or commissioning a special project for your home, office, or garden. Here’s a way you can help.
