ABOUT THE EVENT
This event recognizes Tom Philabaum’s contributions to glass artists and glass art education.
Tom Philabaum’s enthusiasm and guidance has sparked the creative journeys of many glass artists over the years. Sonoran Glass School has selected a handful of them to provide educational glassblowing demonstrations throughout the day on Saturday April 28th in his honor.
As the evening sets in, join us for wine, hors d’oeuvres, and toasts to Tom from guest speakers.
