Venue Rental






A multi-faceted program providing opportunities to educate and inspire personal growth through the medium of glass art.


Volunteers are crucial to the success of events for DMG School Project. We offer training for exhibition docents and welcome volunteers to assist with our popular “Etching Experience” classes and Second Saturday “Art Walk” Gallery openings. Share your love of Art by volunteering for any or all of our many activities.


Host your event @ DMG

DMG offers 13,000 square feet of unique events space, including two courtyards, “Chill Lounge” seating, capability for sit down dining, three indoor and outdoor bars, gallery and sculpture spaces, all within the Duncan McClellan Gallery environs. Our working hot glass Studio is available for demonstrations during your event. Proceeds from events benefit and support the DMG School Project.



Your individual or group sponsorship makes it possible for DMG School Project to host up to six annual Artists’ Residencies during which emerging and mid-career artists develop new bodies of work. These residencies vary from one to three months, and artists are supplied with materials, unlimited use of the Hot Shop and etching facilities, and receive a modest stipend. Residencies offer artists freedom from economic and scheduling constraints, resulting in heightened creative inspiration. DMG School Project also mentors its Artists-In-Residence, providing them with technical assistance, marketing and promotional materials, and Museum lecture opportunities.



Your tax deductible donation helps fund all our programs at the DMG School Project: classes, lectures, school tours, artists’ residencies, free glassblowing demonstrations and programming for inner city schools. With the help of patrons like you, DMG School Project is able to bring the excitement of Arts Education to children and adults.


The generosity of individuals like you have enabled DMG to provide this unique educational experience to over 20,000 children and adults since 2013.  We encourage you to Get Fired Up ! for art, and the future of our community.

Making a Difference


Through The School Project, we can provide opportunities for inspiration, growth, and personal accomplishment.

DM Glass studio was not only a rewarding and exciting experience for the students, but for our teachers as well. We developed and created extraordinary pieces of art which we could have never exposed our kids to if it wasn’t for DM Glass. The staff is extremely welcoming and caring, professional and entertaining, while the studio is breathtakingly beautiful. I would recommend this place for any teacher looking to expand the creativity of their students, to any school looking to expose students to new forms of art, and to any person looking to do something new. Thank you so much for welcoming us with open arms!
