Christmas In The Park

Thursday, December 1, 2022
6:15 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Each year, on the first Thursday of December, the Morse Museum helps launch the holiday season in Winter Park when it lights up Tiffany windows in Central Park and presents the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble in concert. This December is the 44th annual celebration of Christmas in the Park. Christmas in the Park was started by Hugh and Jeannette McKean, the Morse Museum’s benefactors, in 1979 as a way to share a part of their rare Tiffany collection with the public in an informal setting. Today, the Morse and the City of Winter Park co-sponsor the event.

The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art

The Morse Museum houses the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933), including the artist and designer’s jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded-glass lamps and windows; his chapel interior from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago; and art and architectural objects from his Long Island country estate, Laurelton Hall. The Museum’s holdings also include American art pottery, late 19th- and early 20th-century American paintings, graphics, and decorative art.

For 35 years, the Museum was housed on the campus of Rollins College. It was known as the Morse Gallery of Art. In 1977, it was relocated to 151 East Welbourne Avenue in Winter Park. It’s name was changed in the mid-1980s to The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art.
