THE COLLECTION
07 10 2017 - 15 04 2018

Lommel and glass are inextricably linked. Almost 25 years ago, the Lommel city council took up an ambitious challenge: it started its own collection of glass art. In 2010, the exhibition ‘Lommel Municipal Glass Art Collection’ took place in the GlazenHuis. This exhibition presented an overview of the highlights from the municipal glass art collection in the period 1996-2009. Now, seven years and many acquisitions later, it is time for a sequel: The Collection.

Lommel’s love of glass art originated in the history of the region’s unique quartz sand mining. After all, quartz sand is the basic raw material from which glass is made.
