Since 1961, the annual installation and decoration of the Carnegie Trees has kicked off the holiday season at the museum. Organized every year by the Women’s Committee of Carnegie Museum of Art, this holiday happening has delighted visitors for decades.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this long-standing tradition, this year’s installation is titled Bedazzled: Celebrating the Diamond Anniversary of the Carnegie Trees. From November 20, 2021, through January 10, 2022, the Hall of Architecture will be transformed into a winter-wonderland featuring five soaring Fraser Fir trees will be magnificently lit and adorned with hand-made ornaments.
Together This Season
This year, visitors are invited to celebrate together this season at Carnegie Museum of Art! Make the museum your backdrop with Friends and Family Photoshoot, create a handmade gift inspired by art and enjoy holiday treats during Gift-Making Workshops, celebrate the end of the year with your team during one of our Out of Office Parties, and delight in live musical performances every Saturday from November 27 through December 18 during Sounds for the Season.
