The Driehaus Museum Hosts One-Day Symposium Louis Comfort Tiffany: The Artist & His Legacy On November 16

CHICAGO, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Driehaus Museum's exhibition symposium, Louis Comfort Tiffany: The Artist & His Legacy, is a rare opportunity to hear noted speakers explore the artist's life and work. Hosted by WTTW's Geoffrey Baer, it takes place on Saturday, November 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The morning begins with a keynote presentation by Tiffany's great-grandson, Michael J. Burlingham. Mr. Burlingham's perspective of Tiffany's legacy is followed by symposium host Geoffrey Baer's interview with Museum founder and collector Richard H. Driehaus, who began acquiring the artist's work in the late 1970s and is recognized as among the country's foremost Tiffany collectors.

The program culminates with presentations by leading scholars who will discuss how Tiffany's legacy relates to the past, present, New York, Chicago, collecting, and more. These speakers are: Exhibition Curator David A. Hanks; Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Tim Samuelson, Cultural Historian for the City of Chicago; and Carolyn Pastel, Vice President and Senior Specialist, 20 th Century Decorative Art and Design, Christie's, New York.

"Tiffany's work in Chicago has been largely unexplored," said Lise Dube-Scherr, Director of the Driehaus Museum.  "This symposium delves deeper into that subject and expands people's appreciation of Tiffany's legacy."

The companion book Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection will be available for sale, with Mr. Driehaus and Mr. Hanks signing copies at 2:30 p.m.

The symposium takes place at The Murphy, 50 East Erie Street in Chicago. Tickets are $75 for the general public; $30 for students with valid I.D. Group ticket rates (10 or more) are available. To purchase tickets, please visit

This symposium is sponsored in part by presenting sponsor BMO Harris Bank, with additional support from Christie's.
