Two spectacular stops, two great meals, lots of free time in the museum and on Market Street, and we take care of the driving. We’ll first stop in Bath for a tour of the First Presbyterian Church, which has one of the very few remaining interiors in the USA completely designed by Tiffany and Company.
We’ll continue on to the Corning Museum of Glass, where you’ll be among the first to enjoy their new exhibit: Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics. When you hear the words “Tiffany” and “glass,” you may immediately think of leaded glass windows or luminous lamps, but artist Louis C. Tiffany expressed his passion for color and glass most innovatively in the technique of mosaic. From monumental architectural installations to inkwells for desktops, Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics will be the first museum exhibition focused exclusively on this aspect of Tiffany’s extraordinary artistic career.
We’ll have ample free time to enjoy other exhibits, including their spectacular new Contemporary Art and Design Wing. Lunch in their café is included, on your own time. After some free time to explore Market Street – a wonderful example of small town revitalization – we’ll end with a dinner at Sorges, a family owned Italian place since 1951. Indulge in their homemade pasta bar, salad bar and more as we share our discoveries and fortify ourselves for the ride home.
