    This past year the Sandwich Historical Society and its Glass Museum lost a devoted friend, Donald Segur, to cancer. Donald and his wife Margaret moved to Sandwich in 2006, having travelled the world together. They were members of The Explorers Club and were avid balloonists. Their interest in local cultural institutions brought them to the Sandwich Historical Society's Glass Museum, where Donald served on its Board as a Trustee. Mr. and Mrs. Segur were generous supporters of the Museum and its programs. Sadly Margaret passed away in 2013 and Donald in July 2015, a great loss for all who knew them.
    Upon Donald's death, a large collection was of art was bequeathed to the Sandwich Glass Museum. The art collection reflects the Segur's passions for travel as well as their whimsical nature. As a tribute to Margaret and Donald Segur, a portion of the collection will be exhibited this summer in the special exhibition, Glass Impressions - A Tribute to Margaret and Donald Segur. The collection contains the works of Guy Charon, Marc Chagall, Egidio Antonaccio, Paul Arsenault and Robert Vickery.

  • Through December 31, 2016 MUSEUM OF AMERICAN GLASS, WHEATON ARTS AND CULTURAL CENTER, MILLVILLE, NJ
    From the Ground Up: Archaeology, Artisans, Everyday Life features over 600 artifacts recovered by AECOM Cultural Resources during archaeological excavations along Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Co-curated by Historic Glass Specialist Mary Mills and Senior Research Analyst Rebecca White, From the Ground Up highlights the archaeological excavations at Dyottville Glass Works and the history of the glass industry that once thrived in the Kensington-Fishtown neighborhood north of Center City. It also demonstrates how Native Americans and, later, nineteenth-century glassblowers and potters creatively used the region’s resources and established a sense of place. Additional artifacts on display date from the late eighteenth to early twentieth century and tell how families living along the Delaware River prepared and served their food, lit their homes, cared for the sick, fed their children and addressed personal and social issues that are still relevant today. AECOM Cultural Resources in Burlington, New Jersey, is conducting these archaeological investigations, on behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.
