Organised by Art UK
The latest in the Art Unlocked series. Join Art UK and The Stained Glass Museum in exploring artworks from their collection.
About this event
Art Unlocked is an online event series brought to you by Art UK in collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies. Each week, different museum and gallery curators and directors from across the UK will deliver a 30-minute talk on selected works from their collection.
For our latest talk, join Art UK and Jasmine Allen, Director and Curator, for an exciting exploration of some notable works from this collection on 12th April 2023, 5:30pm. In this talk, discover the development of stained glass from the 13th century to the 21st century.
Art Unlocked is delivered over Zoom Webinar and can be accessed via the event page once you have registered. There will be a short Q&A session after the talk.
The talk is free but there is the option to donate to The Stained Glass Museum with your ticket. As an independent museum and registered charity (1169842), The Stained Glass Museum relies on donations to exist. Please help the collection preserve and share examples of our unique stained glass heritage.
About The Stained Glass Museum
The Stained Glass Museum is the only museum dedicated to the art of stained glass in the UK. It offers a unique insight into the fascinating history of stained glass, an art-form that has been practised in Britain for over 1,400 years.
The museum’s collection spans from the medieval to modern period, and includes over 1,000 stained glass panels from both religious and secular buildings, as well as a growing collection of preparatory designs, tools and materials.
It is particularly renowned for its core collection of 19th and 20th century-stained glass by prominent artists and studios of the time.
