Celebrating the holiday season, the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature will host a special open house Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015. The museum will be open with free admission from 12 to 5 p.m. for a Holiday Marketplace where local artists will showcase handcrafted gifts and demonstrate how they create unique items using natural materials.

It’s the perfect time to purchase special holiday gifts! 

Follow the Wildling polar bear from the Solvang Julefest parade to the Museum, then watch the Old Mission Santa Ines choir will perform at 3 p.m. Plus enjoy holiday treats throughout the afternoon. 

This year the Holiday Marketplace is bigger and better than ever, with 17 vendors, many of which are brand new to the marketplace. Ceramics, wood, fabric painting, photography, jewelry and more will be represented.

Museum Members are welcome to take part in an advance sale from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Doors will open to the public at 12 p.m.

The Wildling Museum is a private nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to awaken a passion for nature and wilderness conservation. Exhibitions, programs and events are listed on their website at www.wildlingmuseum.org.

Jessica McLoughlin is the assistant director of the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
