The Sandwich Glass Museum's spring season is focusing on glass as an emotional object - commemorative glass. Gifts of engraved glass and the stories behind those gifts, bring us a bit closer to the everyday lives of Sandwich citizens. Thoughtfulness and tangible memories are displayed with each piece, reflecting an artist's work, a gift giver's sentiment and the receiver's gratitude. Remember Me - Stories Engraved on Glass opens on Friday 1st. It is a fascinating look at the history of Sandwich during the 1880's. A truly memorable exhibit.
