Christmas at the Mansion

CatM Heading Website



Made possible by Lissa Noël Wagner

Christmas at the Mansion is a unique way to celebrate the season with family and friends and has become an integral part of many Midlanders’ holiday traditions. Now in its 17th year, Christmas at the Mansion 2014: A Black Forest Christmas will incorporate Victorian symbols of the holidays popular in Germany in the 19th century. The season will also take inspiration from the depictions of Santa created by German-American artist Thomas Nast included in the special exhibition Thomas Nast’s Winter Scenes, which is made possible by Debra and Fred Westmoreland.

Christmas at the Mansion will be on view and open to the public during normal Museum hours from Thursday, December 4 through Sunday, January 4. Entrance is free thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. The month-long celebration is co-chaired by Jaime Alexander and Catherine Hyde with support from a committee of advisors and a committee of volunteers. This year's sponsor co-chairs are Mr. and Mrs. Richard Gibson and Mrs. Kay Bird.
