Join us for a free family event to enjoy A Dickens Christmas, special exhibitions, permanent collections, and holiday crafts in the ARTSpace.
From 1-3 p.m., take a horse-drawn carriage ride, have a picture taken with Santa and enjoy light refreshments in the cafe.
Join docent Bob Kellogg for a tour highlighting the special exhibition, "Santa Classics," featuring work by Ed Wheeler. The artist imagines Santa entering into the great masterworks of art, with humor and reverence for the originals. Once a painting is selected, he embarks on a multi-step process to fully integrate Santa into the lighting, brushstrokes and tonal values of a particular painting while maintaining the fidelity of the original. It is this attention to detail, lighting and relationships between figures, which lead to another kind of art experience.
Free for Appleton members; included with admission fee for adult nonmembers. This tour meets in the lobby and is approximately 45 minutes in length.
