"Color Mosaic" Free Presentation Template (July 2013)


Published on

Chicago is graced with numerous installations by Louis Comfort Tiffany Design & Decorating Studio.

Just to name a few: Marquette Building, Macy's on State St. (fka Marshall Field & Co.), Palmer House Hilton and Chicago Cultural Center. The Richard H. Driehaus Museum is hosting an exhibition this fall that will feature sixty works by Tiffany and associates, visit the Driehaus Museum website for more information.

Today, I'm celebrating being certified for the Historic North Loop Tour, in which treasures like those mentioned above are a big part of the tour give by Chicago Architecture Foundation.

Thus the master designer was the inspiration for this month's {free} presentation template. Download via the SlideShare link below.
