Evanston museum showcases stained glass and time pieces

EVANSTON, Ill. (WLS) -- 

Tucked away on a quiet Evanston street, the Halim Time & Glass Museum surrounds visitors with beauty.

Inside, dozens of stained glass panes glow. Close enough to touch, these windows from the turn of the 20th Century evoke spirituality and peace.

With work from artists like La Farge and Tiffany, museum guides quickly point out the craftsmanship: textured designs with Tiffany's mottled glass, copper foil to reflect a landscape's fluidity, and La Farge's confetti glass too.

In an exhibit devoted to time-keeping, that's the easiest thing to lose track of with more than a 1,000 examples of artistic expression and innovation to explore.
