Previously on exhibit at the WAM were two sets of exquisite memorial windows created by Louis C. Tiffany and John La Farge, which have not been on view for more than 40 years. Originally commissioned for Boston's Mount Vernon Congregational Church in the late 1890's, the large stained-glass works were donated to WAM in 1975 when the church vacated its building. Elizabeth Fox, who
has served as curatorial assistant of American Art at the Worcester Art Museum since January 2019, will speak about this extrodinary exhibit. Currently, her projects involve the reinstallation of WAM's American Galleries which will explore the cost of luxury in early American visual and material culture. This is the first of three lectures, and is sponsored by the Trustees of the Needham Free Public Library in memory of former director Vivian D. McIver.
