Shine a light on the hidden history of New-York Historical’s gorgeous Tiffany Lamps and learn about the women who designed them! The Tiffany Girls of the Women's Glass Cutting Department, including artisans such as Clara Driscoll, designed and cut glass for some of Tiffany Studio's best known designs. Hear how they earned the opportunity to work in this creative field, even as they faced discrimination and sexism, and explore some of their tools.
