Tuesday Treasure: Heritage Tree Ornaments

December 15th, 2020

6:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Bringing trees into the home during the winter months is an ancient tradition, dating before the advent of Christianity. Westport’s own tradition of artist ornaments decorating a heritage tree began in the mid-20th century. Tour this heritage tree and get a closer look at some of the most unusual and interesting pieces, including an ornament by world-renown artist StevaDohanos. 

 

Tuesday Treasures is a Westport Museum programming series showcasing objects from the collection not normally on public view. See and hear the stories behind some of the most unique, mysterious and impactful artifacts in our community.
