Lindenwold Students Visit Wheaton Arts

May 18, 2016

Just yesterday, students from Lindenwold Middle School spent the day at the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center to get a firsthand look at how glass art is created.

According to Wheaton:

With a history spanning four decades, WheatonArts has earned regional, national and international recognition for its unique collections and programs. The Museum of American Glass is at the heart of the Center, housing the most comprehensive collection of glass produced in America. Located in Millville, center of the nation’s first glass industry, the Museum is one of only 8 museums in New Jersey to be accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

The visit to the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center was made possible with a grant from Field Trip New Jersey, an endowment launched by the Community Foundation of New Jersey and Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation to take students into new places that have the power to awaken, hush, awe, enrich, or otherwise positively change their lives.
