Glass artist Josh Simpson’s piece, Megaplanet, from the exhibit Thriving Spaces: Street Art Meets Glass at Southern Vermont Arts Center


Two distinct collections from a diverse selection of artists swept the Southern Vermont Arts Center this past fall in a new show titled Thriving Spaces: Street Art Meets Glass. Several veteran street artists took their work from the city to the canvas to create brand-new works for the show, and many painted vans, doors, and other structures on the SVAC campus as they mingled with visitors during the show’s opening reception. Their work was augmented by pieces from artists with the Vermont Glass Guild to create a unique landscape united by a common theme: the beauty of the natural world.
