As November fades, our Christmas celebration at the Norton begins. Throughout the month, you'll see special religious artifacts and hear children singing your favorite carols. Also, in this newsletter, we learn about a tour of Christmas stories, enjoy a feature about our Japanese maples, and learn how to plant azaleas for next years garden. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
This month we watch Susie Seborg, an art conservator, clean a Roman bust. We learn about patent models, whip up an artist's recipe, look at the gardens through the eyes of garden designer from New York City, and find out what it meant for a family from Ohio to visit and see Papaw's Picture.
If you enjoyed our "Guests of Honor Weekend" or unfortunately missed it, here is a re-cap of that very moving day when Vietnam veterans gathered at the museum. October brings our First Saturday Tour, "Bumps in the Night". We re-visit the exhibit "In the Shadow of Danger: Photographs of the Vietnam War, 1970-71", which continues through 14 October, and give you a peek of our next special exhibit, "The Curious World of Patent Models", 21 October - 30 December.
