This is your last day to see Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature, now in its 23rd year, which gives Concord’s renowned literary tradition a creative twist. From November 21, 2018 – January 1, 2019, the Museum’s new Rasmussen Education Center is filled with over 30 fanciful trees of all shapes and sizes, decorated with original ornaments inspired by acclaimed children’s storybooks and contemporary picture book favorites.
The exhibition’s focus on children’s literature makes Family Trees unique among the many holiday events in Greater Boston. Each tree serves as a canvas for the artistic creations of a dedicated team of volunteer decorators. Inspired by the storyline, the illustrations, the characters or setting of a particular book, the decorators let their imaginations take flight, much to the delight of visitors of all ages from all over New England.
Proceeds from Family Trees, organized by the Museum’s Guild of Volunteers, benefit the Concord Museum’s education initiatives. During this benefit event, admission is $10 adults, $5 seniors & students, $5 children (4–18); children under 4 and Members Free. Family Trees admission includes Highlights of the Concord Museum.
