November 17-January 6
Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.
The holiday season is replete with tradition. This year, the Conservatory is drawing on the old-fashioned sensibilities of the Victorian era. A 12-foot-tall poinsettia tree takes center stage in our village plaza lined with shops. Peek into store windows. Take photos in a parlor decorated with greens and handcrafted ornaments. Explore the customs that brought this holiday to life for families at the turn of the last century. A display of vintage postcard images will help to capture the sentiments of yesteryear. Victorian era artifacts will be on loan from The History Center. This exhibit is sponsored by the Auer Foundation, WAJI Majic 95.1 and PBS39.
