The Marilyn K. Glick Center For Glass

Welcome to the School of Art's premier glass arts studio!

The Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass, generously funded by The Glick Fund, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation established by Marilyn and Eugene Glick, was built to support and promote the practice of the contemporary glass arts at Ball State University and in the East Central Indiana Region. The center's studio spaces, equipment, faculty, and staff support a broad-based and dynamic undergraduate and graduate curriculum in contemporary glass, as well as community outreach and education about the glass arts.

We encourage you to learn more about our program and our wonderful new facility.

Visiting Artist Leo Tecosky

The School of Art at Ball State University is pleased to announce that Leo Tecosky will be the Glick Center for Glass Visiting Artist from Jan. 9-13. With a Bachelor’s degree from Alfred University and a M.F.A. degree from the School of Visual Arts, Tecosky has exhibited and taught nationally. Tecosky is a Brooklyn, NY based artist who uses geometric patterning from islamic art in conjunction with the stylized typography and iconography of street art to call attention to the beauty of our cultures taboos. Using street art, hip-hop music, and ideas from the 5 Percent Nation as inspiration, Tecosky creates sculptures that are visually pleasing, and offer a conceptual value that is approachable for those seeking to find something deeper than the beauty of the material. Leo works in neon, blown glass, screen printing, and multi-media sculpture.

A public lecture will be held in the Art & Journalism Building room 225 at 5:30pm on Thursday, Jan. 12.

Leo will give a public demonstration in conjunction with the School of Art Welcome Back Party at the Glick Center for Glass from 6-9pm on Friday Jan. 13, with live music by DJ Jannell.
