A New Light on Tiffany: Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls
Corning Museum of Glass Education Lab | March 19, 2020 | 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.
Using archival documents, letters, and photographs, Martin Eidelberg explores the work of the women who worked for Louis Comfort Tiffany in the Women’s Glass Cutting Department. These women produced designs for lamps, mosaics, windows and more for Tiffany Studios in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Newly uncovered letters written by Clara Driscoll, the head of the department, have shed light on role these women played at Tiffany Studios.
Enter the Museum through the Courtyard Entrance and proceed through The Shops to the Education Lab. Bring your lunch to the Education Lab at the Museum to discuss the book. Beverages and dessert will be provided. Following the discussion, Curator of Modern Glass Alexandra Ruggiero will take attendees to view the refreshed Tiffany Studios installation, including the newly acquired Mosaic Column.
