TOUR: Connick Windows in the Boston Area, 2012

October 27 & 28 $40

The Connick Foundation continues to highlight the work of Charles Connick and his co-workers throughout the United States by conducting tours and hosting lectures in places in major locations of the Studio's work. In past years we have hosted programs in Ohio, focusing on Kenyon College, at twelve sites in Chicago and Evanston, and in Princeton, New Jersey.
This year the Foundation will be highlighting works closer to home, visiting sites on Boston's North and South Shores.The tour focuses on notable stained glass in the Boston area by Charles Connick himself and by other artist-craftsmen whose work demonstrates a similar interest in combining tradition and modernity. This will also be an opportunity to see buildings by the great architect and cultural commentator Ralph Adams Cram (1863-1942), whose office was in Boston and who was a friend and frequent patron of Connick and his studio.
