STAINED GLASS WINDOWS AT NAVY PIER’S SMITH MUSEUM

STAINED GLASS WINDOWS AT NAVY PIER'S SMITH MUSEUM

There are many beautiful and special surprises that Chicago has to offer.  One of the them is this collection of stained glass art, the most prolific one in the country, just peekaboo-ing at you as you walk through the alleys of Navy Pier. I love staring at these works of art, just casually displayed for every passerby to enjoy.  I love most especially the religious stained glass pieces of art, because as a Catholic, I believe in the “incarnational” dimension of these holy images – they teach, remind and inspire… In the Church, we always make visible that which is invisible, and we do it through different forms, symbols, works of art, and even symbolic actions. It alludes to the richness of the worship.

  1. Happy New Year Fr. Sunny. I’ve seen them once, it would be nice to revisit them when the weather is a bit nicer.
