Admission: FREE For Museum Members / $5 General
The holidays are upon us. As we celebrate, we are presented with a myriad symbols – conveyed through art and word – that speak of the various holidays’ histories. We are familiar with the art of the nativity, so ubiquitous in Renaissance art for instance. But do we really know what that painting of the Magi represents, or the ox and ass, or even the much later (or earlier) Christmas tree for that matter? Such symbols proliferate our art, decorate our homes, and lend themselves to mass advertising, but how much do we understand about the symbols and art of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and other winter holidays?
Coffee and light snacks provided.
