"Philadelphia is on track to become one of the world's leading centers for the contemporary glass arts," says Irvin Borowsky, who has just given gifts worth more than $1 million to Temple. The glass program at Temple's Tyler School of Art already qualifies it as one of the country's leading facilities. "We have one of the best studios in the country, in terms of equipment," said Sharyn O'Mara, the head of Tyler's glass program. "We've been focused on how to better impact students." Borowsky's donation will allow O'Mara to bring in resident artists to teach and inspire students.
