What is a Bullseye Resource Center?
 •Your direct connection to the Bullseye factory, a place to experience our complete line of glass and accessories.
•A showroom displaying finished work—everything from art to functional objects—to inspire and inform users about the wide range of methods available for working with the material.
•A training facility where artists and makers can learn about kiln-glass, or where experienced kilnformers can add new skills. Check out the October-December class schedule—including Realism to Abstraction: Breaking Down and Zooming In with Kari Minnick.

How is this related with WV or Blenko.

Many of us dabble in making glass objects of art.
I do fused glass, I know Henry has a small kiln and blows glass, George also blows, several others do stain glass.
We are interested.
As for how it relates to WV and Blenko
WV should be establishing these facilities. RE: Blenko? Blenko does what Blenko does. No other comment.
Many people do various glass arts then start to collect glass.
