Later this month, a scintillating exhibition of glass art opens at Delaware Museum of Art in Wilmington.
Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection will consist of 62 articles.
“We have an extraordinary collection here from the Richard Driehaus Foundation in Chicago,” said Heather Campbell Coyle, the museum’s chief curator and curator of American art. “It includes stained glass and lamps – all the things Tiffany is best known for – and the most extraordinary blown glass vases, as well as other decorative items.
Campbell Coyle notes that the exhibit also offers a free audio tour and a catalog available for purchase.
“This exhibition is traveled by international artists,” said Campbell Coyle. “It’s a company that travels exhibitions for other institutions. We had registered for this exhibition in 2020 – it was supposed to be in the fall of 2020 – and of course we decided to postpone it because we really need to lots of people to see this exhibit; we knew our audience was excited about it, but our audience wasn’t quite ready to come to the Museum in large numbers at that time.
Campbell Coyle says this is the last stop for Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection after touring the country.
Louis comfort The Tiffany exhibition opens on March 12, 2022 and ends on June 5, 2022.
