Opening Soon at the MOA: “Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light”
A new exhibition is opening on February 2, 2018 at the BYU Museum of Art. The exhibition is Tiffany Glass: Painting with Color and Light, and it features dozens of richly-pigmented stained glass lamps and windows from Tiffany Studios. Today we show you a glimpse of the gallery as our team works to prepare the gallery.
Louis C. Tiffany’s glass is celebrated for its saturated color and dazzling luminosity. Characterized by an internal glow and milky translucency, Tiffany’s opalescent glass captures light and amplifies color. Under Tiffany’s personal supervision, this glass, in an extraordinary range of colors and hues, was used to create some of the most striking and iconic decorative objects of the twentieth century.
The windows and lamps in this exhibition were chosen for their masterful glass selection and subtle use of light and shading. They exemplify the rich and varied glass palette, sensitive color selection, and intricacy of design characteristic of Tiffany’s leaded-glass objects. Within the exhibition, there will also be an educational space that highlights Tiffany stained glass windows in the Salt Lake City Temple and St. Mark’s Cathedral in Salt Lake.
