Guided Tour, Stained Glass: Battell Chapel

August 5, 2023 at 10:00 am - 10:30 am

Free

Battell Chapel’s beautiful stained glass windows were designed by D. Maitland Armstrong and Louis Comfort Tiffany. Three large windows designed by Armstrong and made of opalescent glass fill the west end of the chapel. Tiffany’s five smaller windows face them from the east; they depict the four seasons, with a brilliant sunrise as the center. Join a guide to learn about techniques used by these pioneering artists and hear some of the history behind these beautiful works.

There are half-hour guided tours each day, starting at 1:00 p.m. Friday, 10:00 a.m. Saturday and 1:00 p.m. Sunday. The chapel will stay open for visiting until 3:00 p.m. Friday, 12:00 p.m. Saturday and 3:00 p.m. Sunday.
