Glass In Flight Contest Logo.jpg

Tucson artist Alex Heveri’s giant Dalle de Verre sculptures of winged insects have been delighting visitors ever since they 'flew' in. Now we want you to take to the skies—of your own creativity! 

In our #GlassInFlight social media contest, you'll take Heveri’s sculptures as inspiration to create something new: a fun selfie, painting, creative photo, or anything else you can dream up. The prize? An Alex Heveri original sculpture!

Heveri will judge the entries based on creativity and pick the winner, but there are a few requirements to be considered:

  • Your creation must be recognizably inspired by the Glass In Flight sculptures created by Alex Heveri exhibited at the Desert Museum

  • You must post your entry on social media

  • You must use the hashtag #GlassInFlight

  • You must tag both of our pages: 

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and 
Art Institute & Ironwood Gallery of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

The fine print: You have until 11:59 PM MST on March 23, 2023 to submit your entry or entries. You may submit multiple entries. The contest is open on both Facebook and Instagram. You must be able to pick up the prize sculpture in-person at the Desert Museum. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. This contest is not sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Meta Platforms, Inc.
