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.
