Centuries of Art @ Your Library - 'Let in the Light: Stained Glass'

Series: Centuries of Art@Your Library

Let in the Light: Stained Glass and Architecture
Margaret Hancock, Art and Design Educator, Margaret Hancock Studio

Across centuries and continents, artists and architects alike have incorporated stained glass windows into their designs. Stained glass windows highlight both effective design and effective engineering, resulting in beautiful finished works of art. In 2008, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts acquired two such works — windows designed by Frederick Wilson and completed by the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company in 1900 for All Saints Episcopal Church in Richmond. This presentation explores such noteworthy stained glass windows through a brief history of stained glass within the built environment, from 1st-century Pompeii to 21st-century America. 

Centuries of Art @ Your Library is made possible through This Century Art Gallery's partnership program with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  It has been organized by the Office of Statewide Partnerships of the VMFA and is supported by the Paul Mellon Endowment.
