Join us for the opening reception of Tiffany’s Iridescence: Glass in Rainbow Hue organized by The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. Vivid colors, hypnotizing patterns, and intriguing textures showcase the vast range of Tiffany’s iridescence. This special focus exhibition explores Louis C. Tiffany’s groundbreaking achievements in iridescent art glass. Presented in The Neustadt Gallery at the Queens Museum, Tiffany’s Iridescence: Glass in Rainbow Hues will explore the science and artistry behind Tiffany’s iridescent sheet and blown glass. The exhibition is curated by Morgan Albahary, Assistant Curator, The Neustadt, in consultation with Dr. Gregory Merkel, Research Fellow, Corning, Inc., and Trustee at The Neustadt.

In 1995, The Neustadt partnered with the Queens Museum to share its collection with the New York metropolitan area through a permanent Tiffany gallery and educational programming. This partnership has special significance because Tiffany’s glass furnace, bronze foundry, and workshops were located in Corona, Queens, less than two miles from the Museum.
