After over 120 years, viewers will be able to experience the first comprehensive Judson Studios exhibition, on view at Forest Lawn Museum from April 23–September 6, 2020.
Judson Studios: Stained Glass from Gothic to Street Style shines a new light on the contemporary and historic practices of stained glass through the pioneering work of Judson Studios, the oldest family-run stained glass studio in America.
100 stained-glass pieces and related artworks
The exhibition includes nearly 100 original stained glass artworks, preparatory drawings, oil paintings, watercolors, and archival photographs as well as collaborations with contemporary artists that redefine traditional stained glass art. Artists range from classic masters: Albrecht Dürer, William Lees Judson, and Frederick Wilson, to contemporary stars: David Flores, Miles MacGregor, Marco Zamora, Narcissus Quagliata, Jane Brucker, Alice Wang, Shay Bredimus, and Joseph Paul Gerges, and the exhibition also includes a rendering of Kobe Bryant by Tim Carey. Some new artworks are on public display for the first time.
Forest Lawn’s stained-glass collection
The exhibition also highlights Forest Lawn’s stained-glass collection, which is one of the largest in the United States and includes works from preeminent European and American artists that span several centuries. The Exhibition follows the publication of JUDSON: Innovation in Stained Glass by David Judson and Steffie Nelson, available March 17, 2020, through Angel City Press.
