Winter Solstice Celebration at Monterey Museum of Art
This event has already passed
Join Monterey Museum of Art on Friday, December 22, 5:30pm-7:30pm, for an evening of merriment and reflection as the year comes to a close and we celebrate the fully transformed Iluminado exhibition at our Winter Solstice Celebration. Admission is free.
Enjoy food and drink, a live set by DJ Gwynneth, and a raffle of Miniatures. A gift to MCGIVES! is your ticket to enter the evening's Miniatures raffle – a chance to win a small masterpiece from our invitational showcase of Miniatures.
Central to the museum's Iluminado exhibit (December 1-22), is a mesmerizing series of artful trees created by local artists Edi Matsumoto, Elizabeth Murray, Mark Schlegel, JP Frary, and Sea Sevilla and Avelino Sanher of La Neta Murals. These trees serve as dynamic canvases where visitors are not simply spectators - they're collaborators invited to help shape the exhibition through art prompts that engage the visitors' creativity and reflection. With every visitor's addition, the trees evolve in stature and meaning.
