Studies of meson spectra via strong decays provide insight regarding QCD at the confinement scale. These studies have led to phenomenological models for QCD such as the constituent quark model. However, QCD allows for a much richer spectrum of meson states which include extra states such as exotics, hybrids, multi-quarks, and glueballs. Within the past two decades a number of experiments have put forth tantalizing evidence for the existence of exotic hybrid mesons in the mass range below 2 GeV. The ongoing 12 GeV CEBAF accelerator upgrade at Jefferson lab includes the constructing a new experimental facility (Hall D) and the GlueX experimental program. The GlueX program will perform detailed spectroscopy of the light-quark meson spectrum in the search for and the mapping out of gluonic hybrid mesons. This experiment and its capabilities will be reviewed.
