Virtual Tour – Decking the Halls
About this Event
Holiday ornaments, cards, music, and photographs are featured as Fenimore explores the history of some of our favorite wintertime traditions. Find answers to questions such as “Where did the legend of Santa Claus come from?” and “Have we always sung the same carols at the holidays?”. The museum also looks at Cooperstown’s own local traditions, including the writings of Susan Fenimore Cooper which tell of villagers decorating for the holidays as far back as the 1840s. See works of art that reflect the spirit and comfort of the holiday season.
This virtual tour is offered via Zoom and features a live Q&A with Kevin Gray, Manager of Arts Education, following the tour. A link and instructions for joining will be provided on the morning of the program for all registrants.
This tour is offered free of charge, but we recommend a donation of $5 to help us to be able to continue these virtual tours in the future.
