Greenville -- The end of November through the first of January heralds a holiday season throughout the United States. The commercial aspect notwithstanding, this time of year is often characterized by family togetherness, good will to all, and giving to others.
Now open at the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum is the new exhibit “Symbols of the Season” honoring three different ways to celebrate a love for family and culture: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. Come out to the Museum to learn about the history behind each and see the variety of objects that are symbolic of each cultural tradition. In conjunction with “Symbols of the Season” is a Christmas in Texas miniature quilt contest where all of our visitors can vote for their favorite miniature quilt that is on display. This exhibit will be on display through January 9th and general admission to the Museum is $6 for adults, $4 seniors/veterans/college students and $2 6-18 yr. olds.
In addition, don’t miss the big pre-Christmas sale that will be going on at the Museum’s gift shop December 17-21st. Many of our items will be discounted up to 30% off including western art, Christmas ornaments, lap quilts and selected books, toys, and craft kits. This is a great opportunity to find that unique gift for someone else or for yourself! For additional information contact the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum at (903) 450-4502.
