Join us for a fun and festive Christmas dinner on Friday, December 10!
Enjoy Christmas music throughout the evening with concert pianist, Shaun Balch.
Our buffet dinner includes prime beef tenderloin, chef’s potato, seasonal vegetables, mixed green salad, and decadent desserts.
Following dinner, Whitney Western Art Museum Curator, Karen McWhorter, presents a spotlight sharing images and insights into cowboy artist Charlie Russell’s Christmas cards and other Christmas-themed work in the Whitney Collection. Russell created witty and endearing illustrated letters for friends and family throughout his career, and when the holidays rolled around, he crafted fun, festive greetings. True to his jovial reputation, Russell added dashes of humor and lightheartedness to skilled drawings of Santa Claus, snow scenes, sleigh rides—and overserved cowboys! Don’t miss the chance to see in person several rarely exhibited, personalized holiday notes, and a sculpture created for a Christmas dinner centerpiece made by the one and only Charlie Russell.
Tickets for our Christmas Dinner are $40 per person plus tax, and are available for purchase online in advance.
