Learn How Women Helped Stained Glass Designer Tiffany Build His Reputation

Sat 2/29 @ 2PM

The exhibit Tiffany in Bloom: Stained Glass Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany is on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art through Sun 6/14, featuring 20 of the famous designers nature-inspired works.

Like many such designers, Tiffany had a studio where craftspeople actually made the pieces — and some of those people were women. Learn more about them when the museum hosts a program called “Art in Context: Clara Driscoll and the Women of Tiffany Studios” in Gartner Auditorium.

Case Western Reserve professor of history Renee Sentillers and Cleveland Institute of Art instructor Mark Bassett will join the exhibit’s curator Stephen Harrison to talk about these women, including Ohio native/CIA graduate Clara Driscoll, and explore their backgrounds and their lives and how they fit in with the changing roles of women 100+ years ago.

The lecture is free; reservations are required. Go here.
