Judson Studios: Stained Glass from Gothic to Street Style brings together two of Los Angeles’s preeminent, century-old cultural institutions—Judson Studios and Forest Lawn Museum—for an exhibition that shines a new light on the contemporary and historic practices of stained glass through the pioneering work of Judson Studios. The exhibition is on view at Forest Lawn Museum from April 28–September 12, 2021 and includes nearly 100 original stained glass artworks, preparatory drawings, watercolors, and archival photographs as well as collaborations with contemporary artists that redefine traditional stained glass art. Drawn primarily from the archives of Judson Studios, the exhibition features historic pieces that have never been exhibited, as well as new artworks on public display for the first time. Additionally, the exhibition highlight’s 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. Judson Studios: Stained Glass from Gothic to Street Style coincides with the publication of JUDSON: Innovation in Stained Glass by David Judson and Steffie Nelson, available now through Angel City Press.
