Club 33 Holiday Celebration

December 3, 2019 at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


The Grotarian Committee and Club 33 Social Hour Committee are organizing another special holiday celebration at the Timken Museum and you are all invited!

In December, the Timken Museum presents its “Jewels of the Season” holiday ornament display. Over 2,000 ornaments have been painstakingly handcrafted by San Diegans Florence Hord and Elizabeth Schlappi over the course of 80 years, drawing influence from the popular Faberge egg. The dazzling ornament installation, featuring a collectible train on loan from the San Diego Model Railroad Museum, is designed by San Diego State University graduate students and is fast becoming a San Diego holiday tradition.

Also on view is Masterpieces of Italian Drawings from The British Museum. The exhibition is an ambitious first-time-ever collaborative effort among the Timken, University of San Diego (USD) and The British Museum in London. The entire collection from The British Museum will include 54 drawings and prints, many of which will be on display at the Timken, featuring such 16th-century masters as Pamigianino, Andrea del Sarto and Agostino Carracci and the 18th-century artists Luca Giordano and Domenico Tiepolo. The balance of the drawings will be on display at the USD Galleries. Docents will be available to guide you through these wonderful displays.

There will be adult beverages and delicious food, including a carving station, mash potato bar, a holiday sweet station and more.

This will be a magical evening full of good cheer and merriment. We hope to see you there!
