CHICAGO (AP) — Stained-glass windows are usually associated with churches — not underground tunnels.
But that's where a new exhibit featuring several dozen examples of stained-glass art is opening in Chicago Monday.
It'll be in a pedestrian walkway beneath Randolph Street by Macy's State Street store. The exhibit is a joint project of the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows, Macy's and the Chicago Cultural Mile Association.
The founder of the Smith Museum, E.B. Smith, says the windows represent an art form that hasn't been widely recognized by scholars and the public at large.
The president of the Chicago Cultural Mile Association, J.R. Davis, says Chicago is joining other cities around the world that have similar such exhibits. Those cities include New York City, Moscow and Tokyo.
