It’s holiday party season! Falling snow, sparkly dresses, festive cocktails, gift giving — we’re here for all of it. The must-attend holiday party of 2019 is taking place at Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA) on December 13. Here are 7 reasons why you can’t miss out on this Winter Wonderland event!
1. A Picture-Perfect Location
Rooms in the art museum are absolutely breathtaking. Just picture evergreen trees lining the Hall of Architecture! The Carnegie Trees, an annual tradition presented by the Women’s Committee, are decorated with ornaments inspired by the museum’s artwork collection. Between the beautiful open spaces, sculptures, art, and holiday decor, this will be the perfect backdrop for some festive photos.
2. There’s A Photobooth
Speaking of photos, you’ll have a chance to take some fun shots in a LUX Photobooth. Grab a group of friends for some high-quality photos you can take home with you.
3. Make Crafts and Homemade Gifts
Do a few crafts in the galleries while you’re dressed in your holiday best. Screenprint a holiday card with Meshworks Press, an artist-run print shop out of Wilkinsburg. You can also create a winter keepsake with the non-profit Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse.
4. Work on Your Art Skills
You’re at an art museum — embrace your creative side! Create your own unique wrapping paper with stamps. The event will also feature live costumed models that you can draw or color.
5. Dance the Night Away
It’s not a holiday party without a dance floor, right? Winter Wonderland has not just one but two dance floors. Jam out to tunes from Jellyfish and DJ Buscrates.
6. Tour the Art Galleries After Hours
You’ll feel like an exclusive club member as you tour the CMOA art galleries after hours. Winter Wonderland includes special tours in the galleries. Plus, this is a 21+ event, so adults only.
7. CMOA Events are Always Classy
Hopefully you’ve had the chance to attend some of the unique events that the art museum held this year. Some fun ones included a yoga paint party, interactive dancing, and a self-care day. This place knows how to put on a fun and classy event, so their holiday party is sure to impress.
