The 2016 Vernon Grant holiday ornament and card reveal at the Museum of York County


 


ROCK HILL, SC – It’s a Rock Hill tradition to roll in the Christmas season  with the annual reveal of a new Vernon Grant holiday card and ornament.  The 30th annual holiday ornament produced by Culture and Heritage Museums has a 24kt gold finish ornament and is a limited edition of 700.  The 2016 Vernon Grant Christmas Card, “Little Dickins,” has a limited edition of 500; the holiday card marks the museums’ 38th consecutive edition.


 


The 2016 Vernon Grant Holiday ornament is funded in part by OTS Media Group/ WRHI & Interstate 107. The annual holiday card is made possible by Jan & David Angel and Angel Insurance & Financial Services and Nationwide. Selected Vernon Grant images have been reproduced as holiday ornaments to help celebrate the famed artist’s work and raise money to refurbish and maintain his vast collection of original works and reproductions. Proceeds from the sale of the annual holiday card are also used for the exhibition & conservation of the Vernon Grant collection.


 


The Vernon Grant 2016 Holiday Card and Ornament Reveal is presented to the family of Vernon Grant at the Museum of York County on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. The event is free.


 


The Museum of York County is located at 4621 Mt. Gallant Rd., Rock Hill, SC, 29732
