CHICAGO, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Richard H. Driehaus Museum is pleased to announce the extension of its exhibition Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection through January 4, 2015. 

Over sixty works by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his associated firms will remain on display throughout the second floor galleries of the Museum. With the addition of four new objects including a unique Spiderweb lamp and a delicate Poppy Filigree lamp, visitors are invited to enjoy the works in the  immaculately restored interiors of the Museum, which was once the grand Gilded Age-era residence of Chicago banker Samuel M. Nickerson. The historic gallery settings provide a perfect backdrop for the exhibition and create a truly immersive experience.

"I am delighted our first exhibition has garnered so much interest," says Museum director Lise Dubé-Scherr. "It clearly demonstrates that the public's fascination with the works by Louis Comfort Tiffany remains high and continues to resonate with today's audiences. I am pleased we are able to extend the exhibition. It will afford even more visitors the opportunity to view this beautiful selection of works from Richard H. Driehaus' Tiffany collection."

To further enhance the exhibition, the Museum has planned several special tours and programs. This summer families can enjoy The "Tiffany Girls" Studio Tour offered three days a week beginning June 25. Tiffany-inspired programming will conclude on November 12 with a special lecture by Lindsy Parrott, director and curator of the renowned Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass.

About the Driehaus Museum

Steps away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, the Richard H. Driehaus Museum is a fascinating and rare example of the palatial homes erected by the wealthy of America's Gilded Age. The galleries are elegantly furnished with pieces from the most celebrated designers of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers. These objets d'art are presented in harmony with the immaculately-restored interiors and surviving furnishings of the Samuel M. Nickerson Mansion, which was designated as a Chicago landmark in 1977.
