Justin Ginsberg

WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass on a series of arts shorts profiling their past resident artists. This segment looks at visual artist Justin Ginsberg. With a material as fragile and unpredictable as glass, artists need to be flexible—and it’s exactly that flexibility that intrigues Justin Ginsberg. A visual artist, Ginsberg investigates the “unusual properties” of glass, and its “extraordinary ability to flex and bend when made very thin.” His work exploits the aesthetic qualities of the material while investigating new ways to think about glass as sculpture. Ginsberg received an MFA in Glass from the University of Texas at Arlington, where he now teaches.
