LRC Special Collections ~ Historic Glass Display

Window from Little Theatre (1930s)Three gorgeous framed historic panes of etched glass are on display in the Special Collections room of the Learning Resource Center.  The 1930s glass panes were originally installed in the Little Theatre, the Auditorium, and the old SCC library.  The glass pane from the old library uses a “diamond” design; this design was selected by architects to be the design motif in the new Learning Resource Center.  You can see this design in the inlaid terrazzo floor in the LRC lobby and in the carpet patterns in the entry floor on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the LRC.

Frame design, wood selection, construction and installation of the newly framed glass were done by Andrew La Torre and Mark Ernst, LRCCD Cabinetmakers.
