Decking the Halls

 

December 5 – December 31, 2020
Scriven Gallery

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.
