6–7 pm

Grab a drink and discover the life and work of Clara Wolcott Driscoll, the woman behind the most famous lamps of the twentieth century. As the self-declared “major general of the Tiffany Girls,” Driscoll led a team of women who had a central part in the operations of Tiffany Studios. Join us live for a fun and informative lecture by Forrest Pelsue, design historian on our ASK team, as we explore why the lamps she helped to create were such a smashing success.

This program is free to stream on Facebook Live. Or, pay what you wish to join us on Zoom and participate in a Q&A with the speaker after the talks. Your contribution supports our dynamic public programs and events.

This program will be captioned. To request additional accommodations, such as American Sign Language interpretation, email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org.
