|Annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch||Visual Arts|
The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch, a beloved free Bay Area autumn event, returns to the Palo Alto Art Center. It is the largest glass pumpkin patch in California, featuring 8,000 hand-blown glass pumpkins, crafted by more than 30 prominent glass artisans. Wander through a dazzling array of one-of-a kind glass pumpkins and other unique glass art objects, designed to reflect nature's brilliance in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. From bold, contemporary earthy tones to delicate and ornate with iridescent accents, these glass art pumpkins are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving, yet beautiful enough to display year-round. Meet the artists in person and learn more about this extraordinary art-making process.
All of the pumpkins will be available for purchase during the weekend sale only. Rain or shine. The public sale runs Saturday through Sunday and proceeds support three presenting organizations: the Bay Area Glass Institute (BAGI), the Palo Alto Art Center (PAAC), and the Palo Alto Art Center Foundation (PAACF) as well as participating artists. Both BAGI and PAACF are 501(c)(3) nonprofit art education organizations.
