The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of Art in WInter Park, Florida, has a stunning collection of Louis Tiffany's works. Its most recent addition is a chapel done for and displayed at the World's Columbian Exhibition. It was one part of a major presence by Tiffany at that Expo. While the Chapel was certainly beautiful and inspirational, Tiffany's main purpose (according to the museum's literature) was to promote its church interior design business - which I didn't know was a major component of Tiffany's enterprises until recently visiting the museum. Here's a photo of the reconstructed chapel, courtesy of one of the museum's postcards:
