The Art Glass Forum, a New York-based nonprofit founded in 1999, invites young decorative arts students to submit proposals for its annual “Emerging Scholars” event on May 1. AGF supports scholarship about glass, from ancient shards to contemporary experiments. Each spring, AGF brings in two emerging scholars to each give a 20-minute presentation to an AGF meeting. Topics in recent years have included Louis Comfort Tiffany’s mosaics in New York and the little-known German early-20th-century industrial designer Bruno Mauder. Deadline for AGF proposals is March 10.[]

Speakers’ remunerations include $100 honorarium, lively and delicious restaurant dinner with glass historians and enthusiasts after the talk, and AGF membership (up to $70 value). Events are held at St. Michael’s church, a Tiffany-glass-lined sanctuary at 99th Street and Amsterdam Ave. We welcome all students of glass to propose topics!
