Over a twenty-year period, Cleveland’s Bob and Ann Friedman assembled a spectacular collection of contemporary art glass. With keen eyes, they travelled the country, amassing a beautifully curated 300-piece collection, with artists represented including David Bennett, Latchezar Boyadjiev, Emily Brock, Jose Chardiet, Dale Chihuly, William Morris, Dan Dailey, Richard Jolley, Hitoshi Kakizaki, and other category leaders. The Friedmans were true art lovers - they enjoyed the company of the artists whose work they collected, often entertaining them at their stylish Lyndhurst home.
