Visit Our Campus

SGS is open year-round. We welcome visitors to explore our gallery and sculpture garden and to watch classes (call for class times). Our gallery displays glass art gifts and sculptures made by faculty, students, and visiting glass artists. Gallery sales support our non-profit organization. We also encourage you to try our Make Your Own Glass Art Experiences, popular with tourists and locals alike who are looking to spark their creative fire through a short daytime adventure. 

Stop by any time we’re open. We encourage you to call ahead and find out what time any demos/classes/events are taking place that day. We may even be able to arrange a short tour for your group (depending on staff availability). To learn more about us or arrange a group visit or experience, please call 520-884-7814.

We look forward to seeing you here!
