Months of hard work all come together tonight, for the debut of the Glass Theater: Phantom at the Chrysler Museum of Art. Artists have been rehearsing in the studio for the past three days, and its going to be an electrifying show. The Robin and Julia Rogers have turned to hop shop floor into a reflecting pool, Bohyun Yoon and Kishi Bashi have created an electronic glass symphony, and Jocelyne Prince has conjured a breathtaking optical illusion. We are looking forward to tonight, and to bringing the show to a live audience in Norfolk, Virgina!

Please see the Chrysler Museum website for details, and check out a description of all the performance and contributions below.
