 Celebrating Design Through the Decades

Presented by Sentient Jet

Honorary Chair K.C. Pickett

Chairpersons Sarah Benitz & Regan Rupp

Design Chair Jennifer Garrigues

The Festival of Trees at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is one of the holiday season’s premier events for adults and children.  This year’s theme Celebrating Design through the Decades will illuminate the importance of design throughout history and the great context it brings for the culture and temperament of the times.  The two acres of ANSG are transformed into a winter wonderland featuring more than 25 professionally decorated trees sponsored by area patrons and businesses.  Interior designers, artists, and florists volunteer their services and work together to interpret the annual theme, cleverly dress the trees, and carry the storyline through vignettes staged around each tree.  Each evening, visitors enjoy choral, instrumental, dancing and theatrical performances offered by more than 20 local elementary through university school groups. A dazzling light and music show illuminates two of Ann Norton’s monumental sculptures as it reflects into one of several ANSG ponds.
