The Shanghai Glass Company Ltd initiated and sponsored the establishment of the Shanghai Museum of Glass. Having witnessed the industrial development of glass in Shanghai, this Company has painstakingly preserved and recorded one hundred years of glass history and culture. Observing that an ordinary glass factory had such an extraordinary history, Zhang Lin, CEO of the Shanghai Glass Museum, transformed the once hot and stuffy glass factory into a space for artistic creation; a place where the ordinary glass renders, in a creative manner, the extraordinary imaginations and endless sharing.
Shanghai Museum of Glass seeks to create a new kind of experience in museums, to contract the distance between China and the Western, glass art and the other artistic forms, history and works, culture and industry, glass art and human beings with rich knowledge of history, fabulous art works, an open communication space and community-based channels of promotion.
