L.A.'s Stained Glass Day Tour Calendar
With Step-On Guide Curt
Judson Studios, Organ Music & Forest Lawn Glendale

Departing: Wednesday, October 10, 2018

1 Day Package

Price: $89 Per Person

Today we are joined by professional step-on guide Curt, a history buff with an expertise on the evolution of L.A. He is especially loved by our passengers for his charismatic personality and unique stories. From churches to cathedrals and cemeteries, Los Angeles features spectacular stained glass and on this unique adventure we’ll not only see these works of art, but see how it’s made and hear the unique stories “behind the glass.”

Visit Our Savior Catholic Church on the campus of USC. This Italian Romanesque-style church was built in 2012 at a cost of $29 million and features a 76-foot bell tower, a gold-leaf apse and huge stained glass windows depicting Bible scenes and saints. On a guided tour of the workshops at the famed Judson Studios, we’ll see how stained glass, faceted glass and mosaics are created by their talented artists. Their historic Craftsman-inspired headquarters in the Garvanza section of Highland Park was originally built in 1900 and was declared a historic monument in 1969. Walking through winding passageways into the light-filled cutting room and the cavernous subterranean glazing room is like being transported back in time.

Enjoy organ music at the Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral, which boasts gorgeous artwork, tapestries and stained glass installed by Judson Studios. The non-traditional, contemporary architecture of the cathedral exudes a calming serenity achieved by soft light filtering through the alabaster panes. Enjoy time at your leisure for lunch and browsing at Grand Central Market, the downtown landmark that brings together the cuisines and cultures of L.A.

At Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale we’ll visit the Great Mausoleum to see the nearly 30-foot wide, 15-foot high stained glass version of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. This stunning stained glass masterpiece is the centerpiece of the Memorial Court of Honor, the only place in the world where Michelangelo’s greatest statuary works can be seen together in one location. Suggested: walking shoes. All visits subject to change.
