Tiffany Comes to Biltmore This Summer

Have you ever seen a dragonfly with a 40-foot wingspan? How about one made entirely out of beautiful blossoms?

What, you haven’t? Well, either have I, but I will this summer when I take a family trip down to Asheville, NC to see Biltmore's Estate new Tiffany exhibition, which will celebrate the creativity and designs of
Louis Comfort Tiffany.

From fountains to walled gardens, the entire Biltmore Estate is going to be transformed into a living work of art. Most stunning and amazing are the “stained-glass” gardens inspired by Tiffany botanicals and dragonflies, a 6’ X 24’ “living” Tiffany-style lamp in the Winter Garden and a “living” stained-glass wall of plants and flowers. All this and 45 stunning Tiffany stained-glass lamps (see above) in an array of colors, shapes and sizes.

The exhibition, which is included in your estate admission, runs from July 1 – October 23 with estate-wide events planned for the whole family, including glass-blowing and stained glass demonstration and live music. Plus, the Biltmore gift shop will feature an array of Tiffany books and gifts.

Come see why Biltmore is the place to be this summer!
