"Over By Christmas presents fascinating events that transpired during the initial period of World War I," said National World War I Museum Senior Curator Doran Cart. "Most of these items have never been previously exhibited in a museum, so people will have the opportunity to see new objects, while learning about pivotal events during the early stages of the Great War."
“Garden tour participants and patrons—often numbering 700 or more—will enjoy a marvelous experience for an affordable price,” says Anna Marie Tutera, the Museums’ executive director. “They will also help support school field trips, summer camps and other learning experiences for some of our community’s most under-served children and youth.”
The exhibit has been made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It was organized by the Thomas Cole National Historic Site-Cedar Grove in Catskill, N.Y. It has been adapted and is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance.
