Join us! Family Holiday Traditions begin at the Eccles Art center, 2580 Jefferson Avenue, Ogden, Utah on Saturday, December 12, 2020 from 3 to 5 p.m. The Art Center’s historic Victorian mansion will be decorated for the upcoming holiday. Due to pandemic restrictions, decorated trees will be displayed on the historic home’s main floor. Remember to bring your camera to capture the beauty of the holiday lights. The Carriage House and main Gallery will be filled with art for viewing and purchasing. Local artists have provided a number of smaller items priced for gift giving. Social distancing will be observed in accordance with the Utah State COVID guidelines.
Holiday supplies for five projects will be assembled in a take home Art Kit. These kits are designed for you to enjoy sitting down together to create an artful, family holiday tradition. These projects may be used to decorate your home.
A mail box will be available for drawings and letters to Santa in the art center’s main gallery beginning December 5, 2020. Santa will be at the Eccles Art Center from 3 to 5 p.m. on December 12, 2020. Santa will follow the state COVID 19 guidelines while listening to the children’s wish lists. A ten-minute reservation with Santa may be scheduled when purchasing tickets.
