Louis Comfort Tiffany
The SAM exhibit is absolutely worth a visit. It’s not just lamps. Tiffany was a master glass craftsman, but also a painter, jewelry maker, and interior decorator. His work, inspired by nature, geometry, and arts of the Near and Far East, is breathtaking. Take the audio tour and spend an hour thoroughly charmed.
The museum is open until 9 pm tonight and until midnight tomorrow (the “Last Bash” starts at 5 pm, see details). It’s your last chance to visit SAM downtown until it reopens in its new space in 2007.
