Grab an Artist-Made Glass Pumpkin at The Westmoreland Museum

The Westmoreland Museum of American Art showcases centuries of American creativity. Sculptures, paintings, and portraits line the walls, telling our visual history. Not only is the museum a gorgeous adventure, the gift shop holds even more surprises that will make any art lover swoon. Among the surprises: colorful glass pumpkins by various artists working in glass. 

A Pumpkin That Lasts Forever

It can be hard to find fall decor that suits your specific style and looks as good on Thanksgiving as it does on Halloween. However, these glass pumpkins have a simple, timeless, lasting aesthetic. There are plenty of different colors to choose from, ranging from a pale orangey-yellow, to muted greens, and even bright reds. 

While the perfect real pumpkin will droop and sag after a week or so, glass pumpkins will last a lifetime, if not longer.

Meet the Glass Blowers

Many of the pumpkins At the Westmoreland Museum of American Art are made by Tate Newfield and Dan Kilbride. These two artists will also have a display of products available for purchase at the museum’s Holiday Mart on December 8. 

But if you’re looking for the real thing, stop by a farm on your way to or from the museum. Soergel Orchards and Trax Farms are two excellent places to pick a beautiful pumpkin to carve or display.
