Well, dear reader, the holidays are upon us just as we await the first snows and shows of twinkling lights. Last week, our lanterns appeared in and out of the museum building, bringing us delightful shapes and colors. I see tins of home-baked goods and holiday greeting cards on corners here and there, as well. Leslie and Lou have arranged a display of original art holiday cards from the Ingalls Library Archives.
These seasonal artworks were sent to museum directors through the years by artists in the community, many recognizable from May Shows past. They are arranged in the small display case in the library reference room. Notice, too, the wrapping paper that lines the bottom – it was designed for the museum store some years ago using our copy of Clement Moore’s The Night Before Christmas. “Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” Come visit us, for a little trip down winter’s memory lane.
