Description

The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass recently opened a three-month exhibition in the lobby of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s White Plains campus (785 Mamaroneck Avenue). Four lamps, made more than a century ago by Louis Comfort Tiffany, are on view for patients, guests and staff to inspire healing and health.

“We are excited to partner with Burke to share the beauty and history of Tiffany with the Hudson Valley community. The visual arts have a role to play in promoting recovery, and we are proud to share portions of our collection to support the healing process,” said Lindsy Parrott, Executive Director and Curator of the Neustadt. “We hope these beautiful works bring tranquility to both patients and hospital staff.”

This new exhibition, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Shade Garden, features opalescent glass lamps with motifs including daffodils, apple blossoms, peonies, and pond lilies. It is the first major display of Tiffany’s works in Westchester County. Prior to coming to Burke, the lamps were shown at the Montefiore Hutch-Metro site in the Bronx from June to October.

This collaboration with Burke continues The Neustadt’s new exhibition program of loan shows for medical environments. Up to 10 floral lamps are available for display in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The Queens-based Neustadt is a premier collection of Tiffany’s iconic lamps, windows, metalwork, and rare archival materials, including over a quarter of a million pieces of Tiffany flat glass and glass jewels.

Burke President and CEO Jeffrey Menkes said, “At Burke, we are building a fine art program aimed at fostering an affirming, restorative, and supportive environment for our patients and their loved ones. Exhibiting the Tiffany lamps, with their soft glow and radiant colors, only enhances this mission. I’m proud to partner with The Neustadt in recognizing the therapeutic benefits of arts in healthcare. We are honored to have these beautiful lamps on display in our lobby.”

In a growing number of hospitals, artworks serve as powerful tools for reducing stress and increasing satisfaction with care. Studies show that art, especially with natural or floral themes, enhances patient recovery, promotes tranquility, and provides respite for visitors and staff. Burke, as part of the Montefiore network of 11 hospitals and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is committed to utilizing the therapeutic benefit of art for its patients, staff, caregivers, and visitors.

This exhibition program is made possible through the generous support of The Fine Art Program and Collection at Montefiore Einstein, Bronx, New York; Simone Healthcare Development, Bronx, New York; and H. Guy Leibler, President of Simone Healthcare Development and Neustadt Trustee.
