NEW YORK (AP) - The New-York Historical Society is establishing a center devoted to women’s history exhibitions and scholarship.

The Center for the Study of Women’s History will be housed on a redesigned fourth floor of the museum facing Central Park.

It will also house a dramatic new glass gallery by architect Eva Jiricna for the display of its extraordinary Tiffany Studio lamp collection.

The redesign also will allow for a more engaging and larger display of its permanent collection.

The renovation of the space is underway and slated to open in early 2017.

It was inspired in part by the overlooked contributions of Clara Driscoll and the “Tiffany Girls.” They designed some of the most iconic stained-glass Tiffany shades that until recently had been attributed to Louis Comfort Tiffany and his male designers.
