Museums that add new pieces to their collection not only increase the chances of drawing larger crowds, but provide more learning opportunities to visitors as well.

Recently, the Toledo Museum of Art added two new glass works to its collection, according to The News-Messenger. "Pyramid" by German artist Josepha Gasch-Muche and "Blizzard Amulet Basket" by Laura Donefer are now on display at the facility for all visitors to see.

"Both of these sculptures are made in a clear or white palette, and both are composite sculptures, assembled of many smaller intricate elements," Brian Kennedy, museum director, told the news source. "These monochromatic objects distill their creators' artistic intents and sensitivities to glass as the chosen medium."

Gasch-Muche has been experimenting with glass sculpture since 1998. "Pyramid" appears to change shape depending on the position of the viewer. Donefer torches glass to create her pieces with intricate details. Both of the artists' works may inspire individuals to pursue their passion for the arts and embark on a career in the field.

Approximately 60 percent of the people in the art industry are self-employed, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
