Tiffany Exhibition at the VMFA

For my mom's birthday, and in an effort to stay cool in the 107 degree heat, she and I went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to check out the Tiffany Exhibit... and how well their AC was working.

The glasswork — stained-glass windows, lampshades and vases — by Lewis C. Tiffany is phenominal. Not to mention, I have a fond love of Tiffany jewelry (I mean, what girl doesn't?). The history behind the evolution of Tiffany & Co. is pretty interesting. It's a great exhibit to see if you're looking for something fun to do in your downtime. The rest of the museum also has some terrific pieces and is well worth the trip. Check it out soon if you can, the exhibit only lasts until Aug 15th!
