Blessing - Excellence

Nancy Gong has gained a reputation as one of the foremost glass artists in the country. By combining the traditional techniques of stained glass craftsmen and stone carvers with her own style of creating texture and painting, her architectural and small works depict various levels of transition and contrast, with striking color, motion and spontaneity.
Gong’s installation, ‘In Art, Science and Life, What is the Question?’ located in RIT’s Innovation Center was heavily inspired by science, technology and the arts. The etched images relate to RIT's nine colleges and refer to everything from the binary system to the black hole.
