Art Glass Forum Emerging Scholars Lecture

The Art Glass Forum, a New York-based nonprofit founded in 1999, invites young decorative arts students to submit proposals for its annual "Emerging Scholars" event on May 1--including topics related to architecture/windows. AGF supports scholarship about glass, from ancient shards to contemporary experiments. Each spring, AGF brings in two emerging scholars to each give a 20-minute presentation to an AGF meeting. Topics in recent years have included Louis Comfort Tiffany's mosaics in New York and the little-known German early-20th-century industrial designer Bruno Mauder. Deadline for AGF proposals is March 10. 
Speakers' remunerations include $100 honorarium, lively and delicious restaurant dinner with glass historians and enthusiasts after the talk, and AGF membership (up to $70 value). Events are held at St. Michael's church, a Tiffany-glass-lined sanctuary at 99th Street and Amsterdam Ave. We welcome all students of glass to propose topics.
