Forest Lawn Museum is proud to present the first comprehensive Judson Studios exhibition, which shines a new light on contemporary and historic stained glass. Founded in 1897, the Los Angeles-based studio has been a leader in the field of stained glass for more than 120 years. The exhibition includes nearly 100 original stained glass artworks, preparatory drawings, archival photographs, oil paintings, and watercolors, many of which have never before been exhibited.
First opened in 1952, the Forest Lawn Museum is located adjacent to the Hall of Crucifixion-Resurrection at Forest Lawn – Glendale. Forest Lawn’s founder, Dr. Hubert Eaton, wrote in his Builder’s Creed that our park should be “a place where artists study and sketch; where school teachers bring happy children to see the things they read of in books.” In that spirit, the Forest Lawn Museum displays a permanent collection, as well as world-class rotating exhibits. With engaging special exhibits and free educational and artistic activities, there is always something new to experience.
Join Forest Lawn Museum on October 20 from 5 PM-7 PM for the opening reception of our new exhibition! Unveiling the Past: The Art & History of Forest Lawn reveals the rich history behind the iconic art and architecture of Forest Lawn.
