2014 06 06 - Tiffany Dome

The Chicago Cultural Center has an abundance of riches, including two Tiffany domes. The one I've photographed here covers the atrium entrance area to the GAR room.

We would never have known about these beautiful domes unless @Taffy had let us know about them when we met up briefly for a cup of tea. We had walked past this building several times and didn't have a clue what was inside!

Such a gorgeous window and pov! Yeah for meeting Taffy!

Wonderful ceiling!! So glad you were able to meet up with Taffy what a shame you didn't have longer - she could have shown you so much of Chicago!!

It is such a beautiful looking dome. I love the warm tones.

@pixiemac I'm so glad you went. I had been in the building many times for other reasons, before photography was on my mind, and hadn't paid any attention to its beauty!

Great shot. I cannot believe I have lived here for 20 years, and even been in this building yet never knew this was inside (though that was before I was interested in photography). You might see a shot very similar to this from me in the coming months.

@ukandie1 make sure you find both the domes, they are so beautiful

Enlarging this, especially against the black background really brings out the beauty of the dome. Great shot Sarah.
