A Holiday in the City, a collection of holiday porcelain buildings, figures on display at TCOE
VISALIA – The public is invited to visit a spectacular exhibition of hand-painted porcelain buildings, figures, plazas and parks depicting a delightful holiday cityscape of the past. The exhibition, entitled “A Holiday in the City”, will be on display in the lobby of TCOE’s Administration Building and Conference Center. Dozens of illuminated homes, civic buildings, businesses, churches and restaurants will be featured in the 50-foot long display. Dotted among the buildings are dozens of figures – carolers, ice skaters, shoppers and diners – all bundled up for the holidays.
A Holiday in the City is drawn from a collection of porcelains donated to the Tulare County Office of Education Foundation. The exhibition will be on display through Friday, Dec. 29. The public is welcome to visit the free exhibition Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The exhibition will be closed Saturdays and Sundays. The TCOE Administration Building and Conference Center is located at 6200 S. Mooney Blvd. in Visalia. No reservations are required.
“We are so grateful for the gift of these charming pieces of art,” said Tulare County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak. “We hope that parents and grandparents will take the opportunity to bring their children to experience the warmth and magic of A Holiday in the City.”
