Carnegie Trees: Holiday Splendor

Hall of Architecture

The annual installation of the Carnegie Trees is considered by many the start of the holiday season. This year, see the Hall of Architecture filled with towering Fraser fir trees, each lit to perfection and trimmed with festive baubles, gingerbread, glistening snow, and more!

Since 1961, the annual installation and decoration of the Carnegie Trees has been the signature event of the Women’s Committee of Carnegie Museum of Art. Each year, the trees are decorated with ornaments handmade by the committee, celebrating a different theme ranging from Great Cities of History to Beloved Children’s Book Characters. The theme for 2022 is Holiday Splendor.
