Hamilton Gallery has an extensive collection of glassware from the 1960s, encompassing important American, European and Scandinavian contemporary artists and movements. There has been many significant acquisitions and donations, particularly from Ron and Didi Lowenstern, who developed the foundation of the glass collection.
This exhibition reflects upon the psychedelic 1960s glass movement.
