1940 Air Terminal Museum presents "Space Age Christmas Trees"
The 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Hobby Airport will house "Space Age Christmas Trees," a temporary exhibit curated by the authors of The Evergleam Book.
For 2020, "Space Age Christmas Trees" alights again at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum in a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition billed as the “World’s Biggest Mega-Show!” Never before, and quite possibly never again, have over 100 vintage aluminum Christmas trees been showcased under one roof in all of their gleaming and glimmering glory.
Many of the most showstopping trees manufactured by companies such as Revlis, Tomar, Stainless Metal Craft, Metal Trees Corporation, Craft House Trees, Carey-McFall, United States Silver Tree Company, Star Band Company, Peco, and Canadian Spangle will make an appearance. Even a few trees from the former Soviet Union will land at the museum.
Brand new for this year is an interactive Mid-Century Modern Holiday Pad where visitors can take and post your holiday selfies to social media. The swanky mockup features a George Nelson Coconut Chair, Saarinen Tulip Table, Mirro Medallion barware, iconic cardboard fireplace, and the pièce de résistance, a rafter-busting aluminum Christmas tree.
