Thank you!
A hidden jewel of Chicago: the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows. Located at Navy Pier, Smith Museum is the first [and perhaps the only] museum dedicated to stained glass windows. In a 800-foot long stretch we can see about 150 stained glass windows at display. The themes are secular and religious, Victorian, modern and contemporary.
The Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows is a permanent display of 150 stained glass windows housed in an 800-ft.-long series of galleries along the lower level terraces of Festival Hall. Open since February 2000, it is the first museum in the United States dedicated solely to stained glass windows. It showcases both secular and religious windows and is divided by artistic theme into four categories: Victorian, Prairie, Modern and Contemporary. All of the windows were designed by prominent local, national and European studios and most were originally installed in Chicago area residential, commercial and religious buildings.

Transcript

  • 1. 3 http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-2201671-chicago15/
  • 2. Well-known artists' windows on display include Louis Comfort Tiffany and John LaFarge, as well as Chicago artists Ed Paschke and Roger Brown. The Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows is a permanent display of 150 stained glass windows housed in an 800-ft.-long series of galleries along the lower level terraces of Festival Hall. Open since February 2000, it is the first museum in the United States dedicated solely to stained glass windows. It showcases both secular and religious windows and is divided by artistic theme into four categories: Victorian, Prairie, Modern and Contemporary. All of the windows were designed by prominent local, national and European studios and most were originally installed in Chicago area residential, commercial and religious buildings. The windows provide unique insight into Chicago's cultural, ethnic and artistic history. The time period they represent, 1870 to the present, was an era of intense urban revision that featured the development, decline and revitalization of neighborhoods, the development of commercial and cultural institutions, the evolution of artistic styles and the response of various ethnic groups to these changes. The religious windows reveal the national and ethnic styles of Chicago's European immigrants, while the residential windows display the history of architecture and decorative art styles.
  • 3. The Smith Museum exhibit spans from the 1870s to present day. Many of the windows were originally installed in buildings in the Chicago area and showcase a variety of historic, religious and decorative scenes displayed in different styles.
