Louis Comfort Tiffany was the quintessential tastemaker of the post-Civil War Gilded Age. His iridescent leaded-glass windows and lamps decorated public buildings and homes of rich and famous clients. But most of his commissions were for America's houses of worship at a time of unprecedented church-building.
The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see many of Tiffany's liturgical works up close, and some that have not been on public view in decades, said Pongracz.
"Tiffany was not simply in the business of creating beauty, he also was keenly aware of the importance of memory," said Pongracz, adding that most of the objects he created for a church were commemorating someone who had died.
