The link between arts and healing.

Last month the Museum of Glass opened Healing in Flames, which is a small exhibition featuring work by soldiers participating in the Museum’s Hot Shop Heroes program from September 30, 2015, to March 2016. The exhibition will include work made by soldiers in classes held at the Museum in the spring and summer of 2015. The focus of the exhibition is to celebrate the accomplishments of the soldiers during their eight-week classes and share with Museum visitors the importance of art in therapy and healing.
