Friday Photos: Wish List for Santa

It’s less than two weeks until Christmas, and the art here at the DMA is quite excited about Santa’s impending visit! Have you ever wondered what the art would wish for? We “interviewed” a few of those we are sure will be on Santa’s Nice List to hear what they are hoping to see in their stockings.

Dear Santa,

I have tried to be patient, polite, and pleasant all year long as I sit here in my chair, endlessly gazing off into the distance. If it’s not too much trouble, could you bring me a book to read? I’m finally getting a little weary of having nothing to do.

p.s. Shamrock has been a very good dog too and would love a new water bowl.

Hey St. Nick,

How have you been? I’ve been keeping things lively here at the DMA, always flashing my golden smile to any visitor that stops by. I’d love a new toothbrush–electric, if you please–so that I can keep my smile shining.


My Dearest St. Nicholas,

Season’s greetings! I am anxiously awaiting your visit to the DMA this year. It’s been too long since your last visit! I have been keeping a watchful eye on my companions here in the Impressionist gallery all year long, and have tried to be a good example of proper decorum and excellent posture. I do feel, however, that my coat and muff are getting a bit drab. Could you bring me a new coat–something trendy and bright?

Yours affectionately,
Winter (a.k.a Woman with a Muff)

We hope that Santa brings everything on your list too!
