CHARLOTTE, NC – The law firm of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, is pleased to be named a Sponsor for the upcoming exhibition at the Mint. Fired Up: Women in Glass is an innovative collaboration between The Mint Museum and the Toledo Museum of Art that presents work in glass by women through new, highly engaging interpretive strategies. Co-curated by Senior Curator of Craft, Design & Fashion, Annie Carlano, and Toledo's Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Glass, Jutta Page, Fired Up is the first American art museum exhibition to look at the many achievements of women working with glass, from the male-dominated Studio Glass Movement of the 1960s to 21st-century installations and mixed media works that illustrate the porous boundaries among art, craft, and design. Drawn entirely from the illustrious and comprehensive collection of the Toledo Art Museum's Glass Pavilion, the exhibition features several recent acquisitions that will debut in Charlotte. Shumaker regularly provides legal counsel to the Toledo Museum and is an active supporter of the Museum. Mary Ellen Pisanelli, a partner in the Toledo office is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Museum and chairs the Board's Audit Committee.
