Technology Advancing Glass (TAG) is aimed to assist the advancement of the glass arts by providing an annual research grant to an artist or group of artists to fund research into new materials, techniques, making methods, or applications of technology that will generally advance the field of art made with glass. Project proposals are open for ideas such as: new materials, production techniques, safe shipping techniques, new tools, adhesives, ways to create glass sculpture animated with electronics… and beyond, limited only by the imagination of our artists.
Completed applications must be submitted online through the GAS website by July 31, 2014. A total of up to $5,000 will be awarded for 2014 TAG Grant awardees for the 2014-15 Fiscal Year (Oct. 2014 - Sept. 2015). You must be a current member of GAS in order to be eligible for the grant. The TAG committee will evaluate the applications over the summer and announce the winner in the fall.
