The Carnegie Trees Tradition
Angels & Aperitivo
Earlier this year, we had to make the difficult decision to not present the Carnegie Trees in 2020. With limits on physical gatherings it simply was not safe for our volunteer members to plan and create the decorations, and hosting the party isn’t prudent or possible.
While we cannot gather together in the Hall of Architecture to kick-off the holiday season, the Women’s Committee has planned a wonderful virtual celebration to enjoy from the comfort of your own home while still supporting the Carnegie Museum of Art. Now more than ever cultural institutions are in need of our financial support.
Rachel Delphia, the Alan G. and Jane A. Lehman Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, will enlighten us about the museum’s exquisite 18th-century Neapolitan presepio. A gift of Mr. and Mrs. George Wycoff, the presepio will be installed again this year continuing a Pittsburgh holiday tradition since 1957—the same year the Women’s Committee was founded.
All attendees will receive a special package to help you celebrate at home.
All proceeds from this event will support the renovation of the Bruce galleries, Extraordinary/Ordinary Things.
