It’s been quieter than usual at the West Michigan Glass Art Center. Since September, the center has closed to the public. It’s stopped all classes and private events. The only people there on a given day are employees and artists renting the studio.
On Saturday, Kalamazoo glass artists and Bronson Hospital staff will make beads for child cancer patients. They’re called “Journey Beads,” and each one represents a type of treatment or therapy the kids have gone through.
