10th Washington Hydrogeology Symposium

April 14–16, 2015           Hotel Murano, Tacoma, Washington


2013 Special Event: Museum of Glass

featuring the entertaining and talented glass artist Jesse Kelly

We'll have the Museum all to ourselves! The evening will include a glass-blowing demonstration in the Hot Shop, access to all the museum galleries, food and beverages.


Join us for a memorable evening at the Museum of Glass just minutes away from the Hotel Murano. Feel the heat as you watch a team of artists create masterpieces from molten glass in the world's largest Hot Shop—housed inside the iconic 90-foot stainless steel cone—and marvel at edgy and inspiring exhibitions of glass in the galleries. With its striking architecture, majestic outdoor art installations, and the remarkable Chihuly Bridge of Glass, the Museum of Glass is Tacoma's cultural landmark. Mix scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and refreshing drinks with friends and colleagues and the evening is complete.
