Event Details

Attend a Wright auction preview of Important Italian Glass: The Collection of Dimitri Levas, prior to its May 20 sale. This auction, featuring Dimitri Levas' remarkable Murano glass collection, represents Wright's finest glass sale to date. Other highlights include works by Napoleone Martinuzzi, Fulvio Bianconi, and Carlo Scarpa—whose vase was recently added to Cooper-Hewitt's permanent collection through the Members' Acquisition Fund. Sara Blumberg and Jim Oliviera, specialists in Venetian 20th century glass and consultants and founder-owners of Glass Past; Brent Lewis, Director of Wright New York; and Sarah Coffin, Cooper-Hewitt's Curator and Head of Product Design and Decorative Arts, will facilitate this event. 

Open to Patron Members and above. RSVP online or to the Membership Office at 212.849.8349 or chmembership@si.edu.
