Admission actions

The millefiori technique that we see in many specimens of the Arthur Rubloff Collection of paperweights has ancient origins in Roman glass manufacture. Trace the history of mosaic glass from ancient Rome to nineteenth-century France in this gallery conversation with Woman’s Board Fellow Alice Boone.
