“Since no previous experience is necessary, we invite one and all to join us in this lively celebration. We are delighted to welcome back our guest curator Róisín de Buitléar, who will also be the grand marshal at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Seattle. In addition, we are thrilled to have Liam Ó Maonlaí headlining this spectacular evening,” notes Susan Warner, executive director of Museum of Glass.
