Glass Archive Tour
Travel back in time to 1893, when Louis C. Tiffany opened his own glass furnaces in Corona, Queens. There, Tiffany's team of skilled chemists experimented in secret to create new kinds of highly-artistic glass the world had never seen before. From sculptural "drapery" and "ripple" glass to "streaky" and "spotted" glass in every imaginable color, their results were astonishing and forever changed the the art of stained glass. Today, The Neustadt counts over a quarter of a million examples of Tiffany's remarkable glass in its holdings, now preserved as an archive of his revolutionary contributions to this centuries-old art form. Join us for special, behind-the-scenes tours to explore the only remaining repository of this important material and discover the secrets behind Tiffany's groundbreaking innovations in glassmaking.
