Louis Comfort Tiffany

Posted by on January 3 at 12:28 PM

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.

not convinced. i'm sure the sam exhibit is pretty, but glass art is wildly overrepresented in the northwest. and it can't possibly hold a candle to the simultaneous historical diversity and topical specialization of the hesse collection. not to mention that hans holbein. which is seriously gorgeous.
