Drawings for American Stained Glass


Rakow Research Library
May 17, 2010 to December 31, 2010

Drawings for American %%Stained Glass%% showcased 19th- and 20th-century designs from studios and artists across the United States and illustrated the great diversity in style and subject matter in modern American stained glass. Demonstrating how %%stained glass%% artists and designers used regional subject matter and uniquely American themes to make the art form their own, the exhibit featured 16 drawings and one full-%%size%%, 16 foot-long cartoon reproduction. Curated by a team of library staff, the exhibit was on view in the Reading Room of the Rakow Research Library.
