About

This inaugural art festival and market will be marked with a special dedication of a commissioned bronze statue standing at 10 feet tall, weighing over 600 lbs, and will blend LED technology which will enable his glass creation to glow from within and be visible from a distance. 

On July 21, 2018, the Borough of Glassboro will dedicate this bronze statue of our namesake, the Glassblower, to be made for the Town Square.  The sculpture was made possible by a generous donation from Nexus Properties.  Glassblowing is a glass forming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble (or parison), with the aid of a blowpipe (or blow tube). A person who blows glass is called a glassblower, glassmith, or gaffer.  

This inspiring festival will include dozens of local and area glassblowers, sculptors, painters, metal-smiths, and wood-workers, plus a multitude of other hand-crafters that will offer their items for sale and be demonstrating their skills and craftsmanship right before your eyes!  The night market offers visitors the chance to browse a variety of goods while basking in a festival atmosphere full of food and other al fresco fun on Rowan Boulevard and the Town Square.

The statue's sculptor Fernando Dejesus, glass foundry, and metal foundry will be on hand to help dedicate the statue and demonstrate just what it takes to create a breathtaking work of art. 

Experience a large scale live performance painting by nationally known artist William Butler which will be permanently displayed in Borough Hall.

Featured glass artist, the world renowned Paul Stankard is considered a "Living Master" and his work is represented in more than 60 museums around the world.

Families are invited to enjoy art-making workshops; participate in a collaborative group chalk mural project, interact with artists, create, and see demonstrations that emphasize the way art keeps everyone connected to the past and improves the present, and why preserving art is important for the future.
