'TIS THE SEASON: A HOLIDAY EXHIBIT FROM THE COLLECTIONS OF VAL BERRYMAN
Opening Nov. 26
Ground Floor Entry Gallery
Every Christmas through much of the 20th century, the Interwoven Stocking Company of New Brunswick, New Jersey provided a popular option for those searching for a gift for Dad. Knowing that every man could use more stockings, they offered a new Christmas gift box each season with a colorful and historic holiday scene created by a series of talented commercial artists. Variations of the scene on the box also appeared in their magazine ads and in store display signs and large fabric banners. This Christmas, the Michigan State University Museum will present an exhibition of Interwoven advertising art from the personal collection of the museum's Curator of History, Val R. Berryman.
