McIntosh stained glass part of Oak Cliff home tour

Dallas-based artist Roger McIntosh created eight pictorial art glass windows for Tyler Street United Methodist Church in the 1920s, plus a stained glass dome.

Those will be the focal point of the 100-year-old church’s turn on the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League’s Fall Home Tour this weekend. Some of McIntosh’s tools and materials also will be on display.

McIntosh, who lived in Old East Dallas and died in 1977, created stained glass for many historic buildings in Dallas, and the collection at Tyler Street is believed to be the largest collection of his work. Check out this story we wrote about McIntosh’s glass at Munger Place Church.

To celebrate the Tyler Street’s 100th anniversary and McIntosh’s glass, the church is offering a multimedia presentation, “Stained Glass, Cleansed Hearts: A Story of Generations.” The free presentation is at 7 p.m. Nov. 9-11 in the church’s sanctuary.
