February 24 | 7-10pm

Join us for the return of our signature glass art fundraiser – Blue Heat!


This fun, funky evening is all about cool art in a hot setting. Mix and mingle with arts enthusiasts, professionals, and talented artists while bidding on fantastic, one-of-a-kind glass art pieces in both live and silent auctions. Dine on delicious hors d’oeuvres, sip on custom cocktails in your own keepsake blown glass tumbler, watch exciting glass blowing demonstrations, and bop to the sweet sounds of The Lana Hoffman Trio – all while helping to support programming and outreach at Glass Art Kalamazoo.

The stunning art to be auctioned has been collected from visiting artists, public demonstrations, and the high octane excitement of Glass Blowers Battle! This is Kalamazoo’s only glass art auction and you will have the chance to take home your very own piece of glass art – an investment in the arts community that you will enjoy for years to come. Guests are encouraged to wear blue or blue-accented attire for this event.

All proceeds for this charitable event will benefit Glass Art Kalamazoo glass education opportunities, youth scholarships, visiting artist programs, and community outreach initiatives such as Journey Beads.
