The Richard H. Driehaus Museum

40 E. Erie St. Chicago, 60611

The Richard H. Driehaus Museum explores the art, architecture, and design of the late 19th century to the present. Its permanent collection and temporary exhibitions are presented in an immersive experience within the restored Nickerson Mansion, completed in 1883.

The Museum’s current exhibition, Eternal Light: The Sacred Stained-Glass Windows of Louis Comfort Tiffany, presents 11 windows set against the backdrop of the stories behind the work — stories of entrepreneurship and our country’s evolving relationship to religion. Eternal Light is not only about beautiful objects exceptionally crafted; it is also about the progressive technologies, designers, and patrons behind the windows.
