Throughout December, visitors can tour the elegant and historic houses at the Deering Estate as they come alive with holiday accents and decorations! The “Historic Holidays” exhibit is an annual tradition and a special project of local garden clubs and community organizations that brings the warmth of the holiday season to this unique site in Palmetto Bay.
Complementing the seasonal display, a special collection highlight features formal and fanciful works by Catalan Artist Ramon Casas i Carbó (1866 – 1932). The exhibit shares lighthearted sketches produced during the artist’s travels and friendship with Estate founder and arts patron, Charles Deering and brings attention to the artist’s formal painting and drawings at the Estate. Special thanks to the Charles Deering Library at Northwestern University for making this exhibition possible.
A series of special events will compliment exhibits throughout the month of December.
