HADDON SUNDBLOM: Santa Paintings


Christmas comes early in the Skylight Gallery! We now have on view a selection of original Santa Paintings by Haddon Sundblom and vintage ad materials. Haddon Sundblom: Santa Paintings presents major paintings by Sundblom (1899-1976) from the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s. With Clement Clark Moore’s 1822 poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas, as his inspiration, Sundblom created for The Coca-Cola Company our modern-day concept of Santa as a jolly, plump and hard-working fellow.

Special addition!  Enjoy the exhibition and visit with Santa Claus. He and Elf Evie are flying in from the North Pole every Saturday in December to visit with kids! Photography permitted and encouraged.  More information.

Exhibition general admission: $5 / free for OUMA members and with a Petrel Pass. Children under 12 are free.
