"Voices of Contemporary Glass: The Heineman Collection"
Foreword by David Whitehouse
Essays by Tina Oldknow and Cristine Russell
For more than 20 years, longtime Chicago residents and philanthropists Ben W. Heineman Sr. and his wife, Natalie Goldstein Heineman, thoughtfully assembled one of the largest and finest private collections of studio glass sculpture and vessels in the United States.
Lively in spirit and encyclopedic in scope, the Heineman Collection includes 240 objects, dating from 1969 to 2005, by 87 artists from the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan. The collection reflects historical developments in the field of contemporary studio glass, and it explores the broad themes of abstraction and material. It is a portrait of the Heinemans’ career of collecting art, and it is a memorable celebration of individual taste.
This engaging and richly illustrated book showcases the artists and art works in the Heineman Collection, and it reveals the extraordinary diversity of contemporary studio glass.
Published in conjunction with the exhibition Voices of Contemporary Glass: The Heineman Collection, held at The Corning Museum of Glass from May 16, 2009 to January 3, 2010.
