About the event
The Vestal Museum will exhibit glass artifacts generously on loan from the Public Archeology Facility at Binghamton University. The objects on display were found at the downtown Binghamton excavation sites. This exhibition is in partnership with the Binghamton University Art Museum and the Roberson Museum and Science Center. Each entity is interpreting glass objects and their history. Viewers are encouraged to attend each exhibition and with a validation stamp receive a glass figurine for their voyage through the history of glass.
