Artist in Residence
The Henry Ford invites internationally renowned artists to spend a week in the Greenfield Village Glass Shop during the summer. The artist in residence collaborates with our glassblowers, creating unique objects that demonstrate their distinctive approach to glassmaking for our visitors. Each artist creates one work of art destined for The Henry Ford’s collection.
In 2023, we are proud to welcome two new artists in the months of June and July. Kelly O’Dell’s work mainly examines species extinction, conservation and human impact on the natural world. Jen Elek’s work focuses on sculptural objects that display the material’s ability to reflect, magnify and represent bold color.
