The Winthrop University Galleries feature a Round stained glass skylight to inspire thought and creativity. A central architectural feature of the Rutledge Building -- formerly the Carnegie Library building built in the early 1900s -- which is now home to the Art & Design Department, the skylight was created by artist Payne Spears who studied under Louis Comfort Tiffany in New York City. Ribbon and laurel wreath forms ring the intricate multi-toned glass tiles and a large medallion at the centerpoint. If you look closely you can see double scrolls and cornucopia forms, the lamp of wisdom, and four torches of enlightenment.
