UrbanGlass reopens as a ‘treehouse’

This forest is more at risk of breaking than burning.

For her latest exhibition at UrbanGlass, artist Katherine Gray collected thousands of drinking glasses to recreate the trees that grow in abundance throughout Brooklyn including the Norwegian maple, the London plane, and the mulberry. Titled “A Tree Grows” after the iconic novel by Betty Smith, the exhibition opens in conjunction with the grand unveiling of the new UrbanGlass arts center.
