OPENING: Stained glass and timepieces an unlikely pairing in new Chicago-area museum

Just outside Chicago, a brand-new museum opening today will showcase early-20th-century American stained-glass alongside a collection of international timepieces. The Halim Time & Glass Museum in Evanston, Illinois, the newest museum to spring up in the state, brings together stained glass by Tiffany and others with grandfather clocks, wrist-watches, and other time-keeping devices collected from around the world. The museum brings together twin passions of real-estate investor and Egyptian immigrant Cameel Halim, who began building his collection of stained glass pieces over the last 20 years.
