    Bray Lecture Series: Louis C. Tiffany's Memorial Art

    Guest Lecturer
    Patricia C. Pongracz
    Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

    Patricia C. Pongracz will discuss Tiffany Studios' work for churches, synagogues, and family memorials like the Bellairs-Bishop-Miner Memorial Window, recently donated to the Flint Institute of Arts.

    For 14 years, Pongracz was affiliated with the Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA) in New York City, where she was the museum's Acting Director and Director of Curatorial affairs until June 2013. Pongracz co-curated a number of exhibitions at MOBIA and co-authored and co-edited numerous publications, including Louis C. Tiffany and the Art of Devotion, Perspectives on Medieval Art: Learning through Looking, and Biblical Art and the Asian Imagination.

    Pongracz received her M.A. and Ph.D. in the History of Art and Architecture from Brown University, Providence, RI, and was a recipient of multiple grants and awards. Most recently, she was awarded an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Under the auspices of the American Wing, from September 2014 through August 2015, she is conducting research on Tiffany Studios' interiors designed for American synagogues from 1890 through 1930.

    Immediately following the lecture, the Bellairs-Bishop-Miner Memorial Window will be unveiled.
