The exhibition will feature a selection of objects from museums, libraries, and private collections, including fireplace surrounds, decorative panels, desk accessories, design drawings, sample panels, lamps, trade literature, and a special look at Tiffany’s innovative materials including an array of sheet glass, glass “jewels,” and glass fragments drawn from the archive of The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass.
Treasured by local communities, many of Tiffany’s architectural glass mosaics survive today, tucked away in churches, libraries, universities and other public buildings. This exhibition at The Corning Museum of Glass will use new digital displays to bring these artworks to audiences in Corning. By examining the inventive materials and process—from design inspiration to fabrication—we hope that visitors will appreciate the creativity of Tiffany’s talented artists and artisans as never before.
