Pittsburgh Once Again 'Glass City' With Exhibitions, Conference

It was called the Iron City and then the Steel City, but for a century Pittsburgh and the rest of western Pennsylvania were famed for another material known more for beauty than strength: glass.

The city makes a bid to reclaim its former glory this year with "Pittsburgh Celebrates Glass!" featuring several large glass art exhibits opening in May, the five-day annual conference of the Glass Art Society in June, and a host of other events during the rest of the year.
