The city of Toledo as well as organizations and glass businesses around the region, including NSG Group, are working together to plan celebrations throughout 2022 that bring awareness to the city’s history with glass and create inspiring art, events and festivals.

“Glass improves daily life,” says Kyle Sword, IYOG steering committee member and manager of business development at the NSG Group, based in Toledo. “I think that people take for granted that they use our products hundreds of times a day. This is a great opportunity to make people aware of who we are and what we do and bring some positive light to our industry.”

The Libbey House Foundation, in collaboration with the Arts Commission of Toledo, is sponsoring a lecture series throughout 2022 that will highlight the rich history that has made Toledo the Glass Capital of the World.
