"I helped to curate the Cleveland Museum of Art's studio glass collection."
Glass major Robert Coby spent an illuminating summer researching the studio glass collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art in a highly coveted Windgate internship.
His assignments were to use the museum’s library to research glass art from around the world; study the museum’s collection of 20th- and 21st-century glass; compare it with public collections in Toledo and Pittsburgh as well as two prominent private collections in Greater Cleveland; and complete a report with ideas for acquisitions, exhibition display, and interpretation of the museum’s glass collection.
ON THIS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY “I’ve learned a lot and seen a lot of glass. I’m supposed to be getting a finger on who will be the famous glass artists of the future and I’ve found hundreds.”
ON INSPIRATION FROM RESEARCH “I already have an idea of what I’m going to start making for my BFA but this research is definitely going to influence the way I think about growing from that point.”
FROM HIS SUPERVISOR “I was thrilled when it worked out that Robert was from CIA but that wasn’t a prerequisite. We received applications from all over the country; so it speaks to the quality of CIA that Robert rose to the top. His work has been extremely beneficial to us.” —Stephen Harrison, curator of decorative art and design, pictured above with Robert
