Carnegie Trees

WHAT: Carnegie Trees Opening Celebration
WHERE: Carnegie Museum of Art
WHEN: Through January 7, 2019

Why You Should Go:

Meeting under the Kaufmann’s Clock (RIP). Skating at PPG. Basking in the glow at Phipps. Pittsburgh takes its Christmas traditions very seriously. One cherished ritual to make time for is seeing the Carnegie Trees display.

For the first time, the Carnegie Museum of Art Women’s Committee is teaming up with Carnegie International artist Karen Kilimnik, who directed the artistic vision for the towering trees.

Step into the ornate Hall of Architecture to encounter five soaring Colorado spruce trees that will spark the senses. Be the first to see the winter wonderland, including the exquisite Neapolitan presepio, as you can enjoy cocktails and a seated dinner at the opening celebration.
