Following his great success at the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, Louis Comfort Tiffany became a household name in Chicago. Expanding on his essay in the exhibition catalogue, Exhibition Curator David A. Hanks presents insights into Tiffany’s largely unknown legacy in Chicago, including his important commissions for such prominent Chicagoans as Mrs. Henry Field and John G. Shedd.
Mr. Hanks will be available to sign copies of Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection after his lecture. Doors open one hour prior to the start of each lecture. Ticket includes Museum general admission.
