Image Universe: Stained Glass

The Art Review introduces a new series of image essays starting with a look at how we think about stained glass.

Editor's Note

At Pelican Bomb, we spend our time looking and thinking about the ways images connect and interact to influence how we see the world. We created our newest feature, "Image Universe," to share our staff's approach to thinking about images, as a way of expanding on our articles, reviews, and the work of local artists. The first in this series takes its cue from Benjamin Morris and his recent essay about the legacy of Emil Frei Studio's stained glass in New Orleans.
