Medieval glass at Corning Museum

The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning. NY will present Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants from May 15, 2010 through January 2, 2011 in the Changing Exhibitions Gallery.

From the exhibit website:

The phrase “medieval glass” evokes images of stained glass windows. But there is another world of medieval glass: objects made for daily use. This is the first exhibition in the United States devoted to glass made for the use of popes, princes, and peasants in the Middle Ages.
