The George Eastman House is one of Rochester most treasured landmarks.
George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film combines the world’s leading collections of photography and motion pictures with the National Historic Landmark mansion and gardens of Kodak founder George Eastman. Eastman is heralded as the father of popular photography and motion picture film.
In this age of digital photography, from cell phone cameras to on-demand television and movies in high definition, I am 100% guilty of taking those things for granted.
Thank you Mr. Eastman!
Rochester Artisans is proud to announce our participation in the Eastman House fundraising event, Festival of Trees. This very cool project was brought to my attention by Rochester Artisan Barbara Tuttle, of Glimmer Jewels, who is a docent at the Eastman House.
The Festival of Trees is just one of the annual holiday events held at the Eastman House. The Holiday Wreath Display and Auction will have over 30 wreaths donated by garden clubs and florists available for viewing and bidding.
The Sweet Creations Gingerbread House Display is a perennial favorite that always makes the local news!
The Festival of Trees will feature dozens of decorated trees donated by area groups and businesses.
I feel a Rochester Artisans field trip coming on in December to partake in this visual festivity!
