The exhibit, “Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection,” is now open at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art in Utica and features more than 60 artworks, spanning more than 30 years of Tiffany’s prolific career.

The exhibition focuses on Tiffany’s brilliant stained-glass windows, iridescent floral vases, shimmering lamps, and accessories highlighting masterworks never before presented in a comprehensive exhibition.

Tiffany was one of America’s preeminent designers of decorative arts and interiors. Under his artistic direction and using enamels, metalwork, precious stones, wood, ceramics, and, of course, glass, the artisans employed at Tiffany Studios fashioned beautiful objects for public commissions and private residences.
