Representing the point of embarkation for Lewis and Clark’s historic journey; Boasting the first modern artificial heart, the first vaccine against cervical cancer, and the first human hand transplant; Place of origin for Louisville Slugger baseball bats, the song Happy Birthday, chewing gum, “The most exciting two minutes in sports”, and, allegedly, the cheeseburger; Hometown of “The Champ”, Muhammad Ali, Louisville, Kentucky,  a.k.a.  Possibility City, claims many firsts - including the first public viewing of Edison’s glass light bulb which now universally symbolizes thoughts and ideas.

Ingenuity and Possibility are trademarks of Louisville. The city’s nascent but burgeoning glass scene offers an opportunity for individual and community growth rivaled by few other locales. Ingenuity has made Louisville (glass art) what it is today. Possibility will shape its future. In 2010, Louisville will proudly claim another first, the hosting of the 40th annual Glass Art Society conference.

As a major arts event, GAS 2010 will bring international recognition to Louisville and its arts community. Geared toward artists, collectors, scholars, students and educators, GAS 2010 will be held June 10-12, 2010.

“In order to mark the 40th anniversary of the Glass Art Society, the host city had to represent and embody the ingenuity and creativity that makes glass art stand out as a medium. Louisville was selected because ingenuity and possibility are trademarks of the city. Louisville’s nascent but burgeoning glass scene offers an opportunity for individual and community growth rivaled by few other locales,” commented Pamela Koss, Executive Director of the Glass Art Society.

The GAS 2010 conference is a region-wide collaboration of artists, educators, businesses, galleries, museums, collectors, and hot shops that will attract international recognition to the Louisville arts community in connection with the Glass Art Society's 40th annual conference. Some of the participating artists include: Stephen Rolfe Powell, dubbed the "Father of Kentucky Glass", Lino Tagliapietra, Carman Lozar, Ben Edols, Emilio Santini, Richard Jolley, Judith Schaechter, Stephen Knapp, Ken Von Roenn, Arlon Bayliss and many more.
