Join Associate Curator Kate Kunau to walk through one of the CRMA’s most unique exhibitions, Unwrapped: Gifts from the Peter Norton Family Christmas Project, 1988-2018. Peter Norton of Norton Antivirus Software fame, is a contemporary art collector as well as an active participant in various civic and philanthropic activities.  In 1988, the Norton Family Christmas Project began commissioning artists to create original, multiple-edition works that were mailed as holiday greetings to friends, colleagues, and selected institutions. Taken together, the Norton Family Christmas Project objects and artists’ books provide a wonderful snapshot of the last thirty years of activity in the art world at large.
