Tiffany Icon Windows Exhibit: Clinton, MA
Jul 14 – Jul 31 all-day

“In Company with Angels: Seven Rediscovered Tiffany Windows”

Angels Representing Seven Churches,” the central element of this exhibit, are a set of free-standing, eight-foot tall, windows created by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1902 at Tiffany Studios in New York City. Originally commissioned for a church in Cincinnati, the seven windows depict angels which are almost life-size, illustrating passages from the Bible’s Book of Revelation. Although they form a set, each angel, named according to their Biblical reference, has different characteristics—and their own personality—depicted in glass through the artistry of Tiffany Studio.  On view July 14 through October 16, 2016
