Serenade
David Fode

Serenade

Serenade, embodies a classical theme done in a traditional style...with a slightly more recent tune, which lies hidden in his piece. This unique stained glass artwork is located near the curved bench and glass wall, just past the Special Services desk. Acquired in 2008.

About the Artist

David Fode was trained in drawing and illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and began his career illustrating various periodicals in the United States and Europe. In 1999, Fode began working exclusively in stained glass, primarily in restoration and conservation. Fascinated by the idea of using light itself as a medium, Fode made a careful study of traditional means and methods used to manipulate light in painted designs.

Fode currently designs and paints new stained glass for churches, businesses and private homes using the styles and traditional techniques found in the 19th century works that originally inspired him.
