HRM to Commemorate 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with Illumination of Glenview Historic Home as Part of Tribute in Light
In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Hudson River Museum will illuminate the tower of Glenview historic home—the Museum’s 1877 Gilded Age home on the National Register of Historic Places—as an extension of Tribute in Light.
This year’s whimsical installation, which will be on view from November 27, 2020 through January 3, 2021, showcases beautiful Christmas trees, antique ornaments and toys, artwork featuring children through the ages, and a tablescape that incorporates children’s ornaments and a gingerbread house.
This year’s installation, which will be on view from November 29 through January 5, features garlands, baubles, and trees in each of the six period rooms, a table setting that incorporates Japanese decorative arts in the Dining Room, and new miniature decorations in Nybelwyck Hall Dollhouse.
During a time when infant mortality was high and doctors were unable to prevent the spread of disease, the act of mourning became a frequent and public affair—one that also spread to Glenview. A selection of the Museum’s collection of Victorian mourning items is on view through November 17.
Nybelwyck Hall is decorated for the fall/Halloween season until Sunday, November 17. We are thrilled to partner with Darren T. Scala from D. Thomas Fine Miniatures, of Cold Spring, New York, and his minions of talented artists who have created a selection of seasonal miniatures to decorate this extraordinary dollhouse.
