“Minds and Hands: The MIT Glass Lab” August 15 – October 21, 2018. “Mens et Manus” – Mind and Hand – is the motto of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It perfectly describes the spirit of the MIT Glass Lab. Hosted by MIT’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the Glass Lab has existed for more than 40 years. It is a place where MIT students from a wide array of backgrounds in science and engineering learn the ancient art of glass blowing, working in teams and exploring artistic approaches to glass. 3-d glass printing, functional glass instruments, neon glass and more. This is glass like you’ve never seen it!
