Art Notes

With autumn comes the Fall Harvest, changing leaves, vibrant colors, crisp air and a sense of community as families prepare for the season’s festivities. Across the United States, citizens in small towns and big cities gather to celebrate this abundant time of year.


The Pumpkin Festival, the first artwork in the Great American Celebrations series, embodies the spirit of these traditional hometown events, evoking personal memories that each of us hold dear. As the leaves change to amber and red, families converge in the town square, with children dressed in costumes lovingly made by Mom and Grandma. Shop owners fill their windows with delicious treats, and fun activities abound.


Join us as the autumn sun begins to set and one of America’s great traditions comes to life!
