Merry and Bright II: The Christmas Collection of Jeanette Turnbull
November 23 – January 5, 2020
Jeanette Turnbull will “deck the halls” at Woodmere with a creative installation of vintage and contemporary decorations that will captivate visitors of all ages. In addition, children’s toys, holiday trimmings, an extraordinary dollhouse replica of a Germantown home, and a sculpture of Belsnickel, a Christmas figure from German folklore—on loan from the Germantown Historical Society—will bring nineteenth-century holiday traditions to life.
