More Tiffany – Statewide

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will host the only U.S. Exhibition of Tiffany: Color and Light, celebrating the work of one of America’s greatest artists and designers, Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933). The exhibition will run from May 29 to August 15 in Richmond, Virginia.

For Tiffany fans, an exploration of works by the master of glass doesn’t have to end with a visit to Tiffany: Color and Light.  For the more adventurous, you can see Tiffany’s genius around Virginia.  VMFA has created a statewide tour of Tiffany windows, with detailed information available on the museum’s web site www.vmfa.museum. The tour extends throughout  the Commonwealth and includes 33 sites, which have been organized into four regions.  Downloadable audio with detailed information on selected sites are also available on their web site.

So take a look at the Sampling of Windows and select a bed and breakfast nearby and plan you trip through the Commonwealth over the next several months. Be sure to check the Bed and Breakfast Associations web site for Packages Specials.
