Winterlights at Newfields

We did a “new thing” during the holiday season by attending Winterlights at Newfields, the Indianapolis art museum.

Winterlights is impressive from the moment we first walk in the museum. The guide points out that we should look up and even the entrance atrium is decorated for the season.

The event is even more impressive from the moment we walk outside and see the bright and festive lights.

We continue walking along the path to Oldfields, the Eli Lilly mansion. The light display on the lawn is a highlight of the event, these lights are choreographed to the Nutcracker Suite. Even in the cold, it is entertaining to stand a while and watch the lights change to music.

We tour the interior of the Lilly mansion which is attractively decorated for the holidays. Then we continue browsing the grounds and enjoying the light displays. Another highlight is a tree decorated with kiddie swimming pools and other play toys.

So creative! And what is not to like about a pretty tree in my favorite color? Maybe this is a new tradition?
