Carnegie Trees Opening Celebration 2019

Hall of Architecture


The Carnegie Trees are a cherished holiday tradition in Pittsburgh. Presented by the Women’s Committee, Carnegie Museum of Art, this annual display features decorated evergreen trees flanking the museum’s exquisite Neapolitan presepio.

This annual preview event kicks off the holiday season. This year, the Trees Committees chose artworks from the museum's collection to use as inspiration for their creative decorations for each tree, including The Chariot of Aurora by Jean-Theodore Dupas, among others.

Sponsors and guests will enjoy a festive cocktail reception while previewing the magnificent trees in the Hall of Architecture. Patron-level guests are invited to an elegant seated dinner at 8 p.m. following the cocktail reception.

Complimentary valet parking will be available at the Carriage Drive Entry, located off Forbes Avenue.
