Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences shows Christmas tree exhibit

Nearly 50 trees were set up for display, and each tree was decorated by artists, schools, and other organizations in the community.

MACON, Ga. — Museum goers in Macon are seeing the nature of art come to life at the 36th annual Festival of Trees by the Museum of Arts and Sciences.

For nearly 40 years, art lovers and museum goers have seen different works of art from many trees.

Mrs. Beth Guest teaches art at Windsor Academy, and her students put together a Christmas tree with fun-sized replicas of some of the things you can find here at the museum.

"We thought, "'Hey', let's make everything at the museum fun-sized so we can put it on a tree," Guest says. "I was hoping maybe kids will use it like a game."

Mrs. Guest says it took almost a month to complete the project. She says her students never cease to amaze her.

"When I look at this tree, I see my students." Guest says. "I see their hard work, imagination, and I'm very happy with the way it came out."

Kyrie Hugdahl is the communications director for the museum. She enjoys seeing creative people bringing art and new ideas to life.

"They're all absolutely gorgeous and you can see all of the love that designers have poured into the museum." Hugdahl says. "My favorite is probably the museum-themed tree, because it is all about the museum."

You can see the tree exhibit and many more at the museum until January 21st.

Admissions is $10 for adults, $5 for children, and kids under 3 can get in for free.
