WINTER PARK, FL— Admission to the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art will be free Friday, November 25, Saturday, November 26, and Sunday, November 27, to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend. The Beautiful Music Jazz Quartet will play in the galleries from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday. The three-day celebration kicks off “Holidays at the Morse,” which offers live music in the galleries from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays through December.
The Morse Museum is a benefaction to the community from Jeannette G. and Hugh F. McKean. Jeannette founded the Museum, intent on providing her adopted hometown of Winter Park with an enriching arts institution. Hugh, the Museum’s first director, shared her vision. In this spirit, we invite family and friends to view a bounty of beauty by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933) and other American artists.
Located at 445 N. Park Avenue, the Morse Museum is home to the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by American artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany. The Museum’s collection also includes extensive holdings of American art pottery as well as late 19th- and early 20th-century American paintings, graphics, and decorative art.
