12 Trees: Let There Be Light

A much-loved holiday tradition since 1990, the Gardiner Museum’s annual 12 Trees exhibition continues to be a wonderful event that brings family and friends together to celebrate the season.

This year’s 12 Trees exhibition will focus on light as a potent symbol of hope that many cultures share during the season. Curated by famed Canadian writer and artist Douglas Coupland and Vice President of Public Art Management Ben Mills, this year’s exhibition will bring a dynamic, contemporary, and light-filled perspective to the 12 Trees tradition.

Among other delights, this year’s light-inspired art installations include a disco-ball Christmas tree, a manually-powered holiday tree light show, an animated winter dreamscape, a “tree” comprised of illuminated cubic blocks, and more.

In addition to the twelve artist installations, the Gardiner will erect a 35-foot white spruce on the Museum’s front plaza designed by Presenting Sponsor, Nordstrom, and donated by Ontario Wood and Forests Ontario.
