Dec 10, 2013 03:27AM
‘Tis the season of the free Winter Solstice celebration at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, where event-goers will enjoy myriad holiday art, music, food, décor and shopping activities for the whole family from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on December 19.
For outdoor adventure, experience the exhilarating ice carving demonstration performed by Stephan Koch of Indiana Ice Studio. Enjoy the holiday sounds of Dickens-style carolers while cozying up to a bonfire with hot chocolate and other savory sustenance available for purchase from the Scout’s Treats and Mac Genie food trucks. Youngsters and adults alike will delight in an encounter with Sami, the reindeer herder, and his arctic wildlife friends and create your very own sun-catcher scratch art which could become a worthy gift for a cherished relative.
Warm up in the Lilly House with holiday music by Encore Vocal Arts and harpist Jan Aldridge Clark, while viewing the early 20th-century decorating traditions that bring together natural materials and blooming plants. Before heading home with full bellies and fond memories, consider doing some holiday shopping at the Museum Shop and Greenhouse.
