The Philbrook museum comes alive for the holidays with the 30th anniversary of the Festival of the Trees. The festival runs through Dec.14
The festival displays various holiday themed items (mostly trees) created by local artist. The trees range from beautifully decorated traditional trees, to out of this world art objects that symbolize trees. All of the art in the festival is for sale, with the proceeds from the sales support the Holidays at Philbrook events as well as year-round educational programs and Museum operations.
What would Christmas be without Ginger Bread Houses. Head-up to the second floor of the Philbrook for a wide display of Ginger Bread Houses created by local schools, scout troops, churches and nonprofits. The craftsmanship and creativity deployed to create these confectionary crafts is astounding.
