The second annual Miracle on Farnam,
a season-long celebration of creativity and cheer, will be held November 23 through December 31, 2013, at Midtown Crossing. Stroll in the glow of sparkling lights, sip hot chocolate, and enjoy the parade of dazzling window displays by Omaha’s creative non-profits — including Joslyn Art Museum! The winning window, determined by a public vote, will earn a $3,000 donation. Come at dusk on Saturday, November 23,
for the unveiling of the window displays and the debut of Midtown Crossing’s holiday lights, followed by a spectacular fireworks extravaganza at 8 pm. And don’t forget to vote for Joslyn’s window (online or with your mobile device)!
About Joslyn's Window
Theme: Mini Masterpieces with Joslyn Art Museum
Joslyn Art Museum has created a forest of evergreens and artwork. Local artists and Joslyn students have abstracted and reinterpreted art from the Museum’s collection — in miniature and 3D! Watch and wait as each framed diorama, nestled among snow-laden branches, lights up, showcasing some of Joslyn’s most recognizable artworks. Artworks reproduced include a poignant depiction of the loss of a beloved pet tiger, abstract paintings in purple and silver, an iconic Iowa town scene, and a mobile of leaf-like shapes and colorful circles. All ages will delight in this pop-up gallery of mini masterpieces!
