UTICA – Heat wave be damned — at the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute is bringing the fire.

“The Hot Glass Road Show” – The Corning Museum of Glass’ mobile glass-blowing studio – will be here from Friday – Aug. 2 – until Aug. l1, with demonstrations, classes and live glass-blowing exhibitions, all parked on the MWP’s front lawn at 310 Genesee St.

It’s part of the institute’s Louis Comfort Tiffany exhibit, on view through Sept. 8. “To see this Tiffany glass in person, you really understand why it is the pinnacle of stained glass,” said Anna D’Ambrosio, MWP president. “He was painting with color and light in 3-D.”

The exhibit – a traveling show that was last at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa – contains 60 pieces from the private Driehaus collection in Chicago, including the “River of Life” window.
