The holidays have never been merrier than this year at the Clay Center!

Trees of the World
Grab your passport and experience a holiday exhibit showcasing traditions from around the globe with trees decorated by local students. Explore vignettes and handmade ornaments celebrating the unique holiday traditions of Ireland, Sweden, China, Canada, Greece and more. The centerpiece of “Trees of the World” is our global miniature village, highlighted by our “Peace on Earth” tree. You can even add your own artistic touch by decorating a peace symbol while visiting the exhibit, and placing it on the tree!
