Arts and Cultural Alliance of Jackson County’s (ACAJC) upcoming architecture tour will celebrate stained glass throughout downtown Jackson.
This self-paced walking tour, sponsored by Anchor Initiative, highlights stained glass within architecture in the downtown area on Saturday, August 25. The tour can be completed at a leisurely pace in about 40 minutes.
“Jackson’s stained glass is primarily seen from the outside,” says Kate Schwartz, ACAJC’s chair. “Our tour lets Jackson residents see it from the inside of buildings, where it really shows off its luster.”
The tour will kick-off with a special presentation by Jeannette Woodard of Woodard & Associates, Architects. Woodard will give three presentations at 10 a.m., noon, and 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church at 120 N Jackson St.
Docents will be stationed throughout the day at the historic buildings from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Cost is $8 per child (16 and under), $10 per adult.
Additional support for the architectural tour comes courtesy of Jackson Community Foundation’s Art and Literacy Grant.
