Dancing Under the Glass Dome


Chicago Cultural Center, Preston Bradley Hall

Saturday, March 22, 9 pm - 12 am

After you’ve enjoyed three full days of lectures, demos and other conference events, get ready to let loose and party with fellow glass lovers at the closing night Party! This year’s celebration will take place at Preston Bradley Hall, a beautiful event space at the Chicago Cultural Center, located just a few blocks from the conference hotel. Enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and beverages, while dancing the night away beneath a 38-ft. Tiffany Glass dome (one of the largest in the world). This room also features twenty-five Tiffany Glass chandeliers, marble arches inlaid with sparkling mosaics and a spectacular view of Millennium Park. Not the dancing type? Lay low and chat with friends in the G.A.R. Hall and Rotunda, which includes a second glass-domed ceiling, designed by the Healey Millet glass company.

Your full conference pass or Saturday day pass includes entrance into the Closing Night Party. Due to city regulations, the Chicago Cultural Center is not allowed to offer a cash bar. To enjoy beverages at this event, you will need to purchase a Closing Night Party Voucher for up to three drinks. For guests of conference attendees who are not registered for the conference, or Thursday or Friday day pass registrants, you will need to purchase the Closing Night Party Pass & Voucher which allows entrance and up to three beverages. This event is not open to the general public.

The Glass Art Society reserves the right to deny applications for Technical Display, advertising participation, GAS membership or the conference from anyone for any reason.
