Club 33 Holiday Celebration at the Timken Museum

December 4, 2018 at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


The Grotarian Committee and the Club 33 Social Hour Committee are organizing a holiday celebration at the Timken Museum and you are all invited! Guests and prospective members are welcome.

This will be a very special holiday event. In December, the Timken Museum in Balboa Park 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 is designed by San Diego State University graduate students and is fast becoming a San Diego holiday tradition. Also on view will be the Timken’s special exhibition, Rococo Rivals & Revivals. Composed of 12 objects, paintings, drawings and prints, this exhibition will be presenting, for the first time in Southern California, a global vision on the different personalities and schools of Rococo. It features a major oil painting The Italian Comedians by Antoine Watteau, on loan from the National Gallery, Washington D.C.

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