This exhibition is the first public showing in California of selections from Arlene and Harold Schnitzers’s extensive glass collection. Well known for their distinctive collections of painting and sculpture by Northwest artists, Chinese funerary arts, Native American arts, and American silver, Arlene and her late husband, Harold, also assembled an astute and personal glass collection. Their holdings include works by international as well as local artists recognized as the finest in their regions. Favorite Thingsis comprised of exactly that: twenty-five of Arlene’s favorite pieces that reflect a wide diversity of glass techniques and aesthetic styles found in contemporary glass.

This exhibition was organized by Palm Springs Art Museum and curated by Katherine Hough, retired Chief Curator. Special thanks to Arlene Schnitzer and her Collections Manager Laurie LaBathe for their guidance, and to The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation for their generous exhibition support.
