Holiday GIF-Greetings from Around the World

Happy Holidays & End to the Old Year (Finally) from Jim Kempner Fine Art 

By PAUL LASTER, December 2020

It’s that time of year again, when our inbox is filled with holiday cheer from artists, architects, designers, art centers, galleries, museums, non-profit organizations, and creative shops around the world. Our friends have been working overtime to make our season brighter with their inventive GIFs. We’ve received animations of flashing lights and signs, sculptures in the snow, buildings in snow globes, playful patterns, dancing letters, loose lines, bouncing ornaments, rotating boomboxes and idyllic getaway beaches. From the hundreds of greetings in multiple languages, we’ve selected our favorite GIFS to share these good wishes with you! WM
