South Students to Host Glass Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser
Posted on September 22, 2021
The University of South Alabama’s glass art program is excited to announce its second annual glass pumpkin patch fundraiser. Students and faculty have created more than 500 handmade, glass pumpkins of all shapes, color and sizes to celebrate the fall season. Funds generated from pumpkin sales will go toward upgrading glass studio equipment.
“This is a great way for the students to showcase their work in a real-world, retail setting while raising funds to keep the equipment online for future glass students,” said Matthew Patterson, assistant professor in the College of Arts and Sciences Department of Art and Art History.
The pumpkin patch sales are scheduled for Friday, October 1, and Friday, October 22, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Glass Art Building on the University of South Alabama campus at 399 N University Blvd., Mobile, AL 36608 (Entrance 7). Glass pumpkins will be priced between $15 to $100, and purchases can be made via cash, check or credit card.
The two events are open to the public. All COVID-19 policies as established by the University will be followed. Please be sure to wear a mask.
South is the only university in Alabama that offers a four-year Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in studio glass. The glass studio was founded in 2010 in a state-of-the-art facility for glassblowing, casting and kiln formed glass.
