Swope celebrates the holidays with trunk show during ‘Miracle’ event

TERRE HAUTE — The Swope Art Museum, located at 25 S. Seventh St., will offer special opportunities and events just in time for the holidays on Dec. 2 at “A Holiday Spectacle.”

The event is planned in conjunction with Downtown Terre Haute’s Miracle on 7th Street. The event is free and will be open from 5 to 9 p.m.

Visitors will be able to listen to Indiana State University student playwrights read plays that have been inspired by works of art in the Swope’s collection; at 8 p.m. go on tours of “Reimagining the Distaff Toolkit” with Swope curator Elizabeth (Lisa) Petrulis; and enjoy a cash bar and complimentary treats all evening. New play readings are planned for 7 p.m.

From 5 to 7 p.m. the Sycamore Tree-O! will perform. The trio consists of Indiana State University music majors Nathan Rainey (horn), Katie Richard (oboe) and Jessie Forthun (piano).

Holiday shoppers will appreciate the chance to cross names off their lists by purchasing original items from the vendors in the museum’s fourth annual trunk show. The museum’s 70th Anniversary 2012 calendars will be available for purchase.

Six artisans from across Indiana will present a variety of unique items including handmade jewelry, hot blown glass, holiday cards and personal items. There will gift ideas for every budget and price range. Vendors include:
