Racine Art Museum’s desire to track the diversity of the glass medium was given a boost in 2013 with the addition of 65 pieces gifted by collectors, Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser. This exhibition celebrates a gift of 65 glass pieces, donated by Los Angeles area collectors Daniel Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser, which both introduces new artists to RAM’s holdings and expands upon significant makers already represented.
Motivated by an interest in the vessel form, Los Angeles area collectors Greenberg and Steinhauser began acquiring glass in the 1970s and amassed an impressive grouping of over 400 works that they recently began sharing with select institutions across the country. Similar to RAM’s philosophy of collecting the work of artists in-depth, Greenberg and Steinhauser often gathered five or more pieces by a single artist.
