■“Glass ’02 in Japan” is a celebration of the Japan Glass Artcraft Association’s 30th anniversary since its establishment, and for the culture award won by Kyohey Fujita, the chairman of JGAA. We had three key events for the anniversary celebration , a commemorative exhibition at Ginza Yokyo Hall, a travelling exhibition at Koganezaki Crystal Park, and a commemorative publication, “Art in Glass”. The travelling exhibition Part 2, ended successfully 17 April. We thank everyone who attended the exhibition and viewed our memorial volumes. We also would like to express gratitude to the people who supported and co-operated with our commemorative events.
