The Richard H. Driehaus Museum explores the art, architecture, and design of the late 19th century to the present. Its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions are presented in an immersive experience within the restored Nickerson Mansion, completed in 1883.

The Driehaus’s current exhibition, Eternal Light: The Sacred Stained-Glass Windows of Louis Comfort Tiffany, looks without sentiment at the ecclesiastical windows of the Tiffany firm as rich reminders that America is ever-changing. Louis Comfort Tiffany’s masterpieces tell stories about American entrepreneurship, places of worship as community incubators, and our country’s evolving relationship to religion. Eternal Light is not only about beautiful objects exceptionally crafted; it is also about the ideas and stories behind the windows: progressive technologies, designers, and patrons. At the heart of the exhibition are eleven outstanding, religiously themed windows made between 1880 and 1920 that demonstrate the signature designs, working methods, techniques, and production styles of Tiffany and his workshops.

September 7, 2019- March 8, 2020, Open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm, Adults: $20, Seniors $15, Students & Educators with ID: $10, Children 12 & under: free.
