Brazos Forum 2013
An Illuminating Look at Louis Comfort Tiffany
“An Illuminating Look at Louis Comfort Tiffany” is the theme for this year’s Brazos Forum. As in the past few years, the Forum will be held at the Mayborn Museum on the Baylor Campus. However, the date has been moved from its usual October time to Wednesday and Thursday, November 6th and 7th, 2013, to complement the exhibit In Company with Angels, which is coming to Waco through Historic Waco Foundation. Opening on November 2nd, the exhibit will feature seven restored stained-glass windows created by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1902. Each window depicts an angel representing one of the seven Christian Churches of Asia Minor described in the Book of Revelation. The windows have traveled around the United States on exhibit since 2007. Waco is fortunate to be the first venue in Texas to host this exhibit.
Focusing on aspects of Tiffany’s creativity, other than stained glass, the 2013 Brazos Forum will take An Illuminating Look at Louis Comfort Tiffany. Many of the varied mediums through which Tiffany showed his unique and multifaceted designs will be showcased through enlightening presentations with glowing illustrations. Topics which will be discussed are Tiffany’s jewelry, pottery, blown glass, paintings, and metal pieces, including his use of vibrant colors throughout all of his works. This 2013 Forum promises to inform, educate, and entertain. Please be a part of this exciting experience, and join us for this broad look at Louis Comfort Tiffany as well as the wonderful exhibit, In Company with Angels.
