Here’s another reason to plan a long layover at San Francisco International Airport: there’s an new exhibit featuring the work of Louis C. Tiffany, courtesy of the SFO Museum.

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) pioneered new forms of stained glass and his studios created leaded glass windows, lamps and many other items that featured ornamental glass elements.
The SFO Museum exhibit at SFO International Airport includes an exquisite cobweb table lamp, one of only seven known to exist, a one-of-a-kind Zinnia table lamp, a Peacock window panel, oil paintings, glass vases, ceramics and more.
Look for “A Radiant Light: The Artistry of Louis C. Tiffany” pre-security in the International Terminal Main Hall Departures Lobby at San Francisco International Airport through January 23, 2015.
