About The Bay Area Glass Institute
The Bay Area Glass Institute (BAGI) was founded in 1996 to fulfill three main goals:
- To educate the public about glass art.
- To provide an affordable studio for emerging and established glass artists to pursue their artistic endeavors.
- To provide events that bring the public and artists in contact to encourage the exchange of ideas and the collecting of original artwork.
We offer studio rental time, giving artists a place to practice their craft. We also help emerging artists by providing them assistance in showing their work at BAGI, being a part of BAGI's public demonstrations such as the Second Sunday program, and by inviting them to participate in BAGI’s large-scale exhibitions such as the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch®, the Great Glass Auction and the Winter Wonderland.
