This is why I love my job as marketing director at an art museum — during December, my workplace looks like this. Every year we host an annual exhibit of huge live trees that people in our community volunteer to decorate, and I have to say that this year is one of the best ever. A woman whose husband is a firefighter decorated the tree on the right to honor local fire departments. The tree on the left was decorated by a medical auxiliary to raise awareness of childhood cancer. We’ve got a tree celebrating books, one featuring “visions of sugarplums” and one called “Fleece Navidad” that’s full of every kind of stuffed and carved and sewn and decorated lamb you can imagine. I love hearing people walk through the exhibit and “ooh” and “ahh” in delight. Makes me think that I really should put our tree up … sometime soon.
As a subscriber to TVAC I need to take better advantage of my membership. Hopefully I’ll make it to the exhibit this year.
The above two trees are very nice. I’m interested in the “book” tree and “sugar plum tree”.
What a wonderful job you have – congratulations!!!
I got a personal tour of the museum today and loved seeing all the trees, including the Chemist’s Tree. Very clever!
