In the mid-1960s, the aluminum Christmas tree was the height of sophistication. Now, like many other accoutrements from that era, they are prized for their vintage tackiness.
Now, Brevard is bringing it all back with the Aluminum Tree and Aesthetically Challenged Seasonal Ornament Museum (conveniently shortened to ATOM by omitting some words) at the Transylvania Heritage Museum.
This is a full-immersion aluminum-tree celebration, with some 50 vintage trees, revolving color wheels and an overdose of “aesthetically challeneged” ornaments.
The exhibit will run Friday, Nov. 27, through Saturday, Dec. 19, at the Transylvania Heritage Museum, 40 West Jordan St., in Brevard. The museum is open Wednesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
