Christmas Room

miniature room

Julie Conner created this miniature room--one of 28 donated to the museum--hand choosing and placing each piece, often working late at night when her house was quiet. She found creating miniature rooms to be a sort of "play-therapy" during a difficult time in her life, soon after her toddler son was diagnosed with autism. Many rooms reflect Conner’s interests and experiences such as holidays and family vacations.
