Black Friday in CMA's Collection

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and there are multiple ways to spend your Black Friday. Perhaps you took the day off to sleep-in and enjoy holiday leftovers. Maybe you’ve been up since 4 a.m. and scored all the door buster deals. Or maybe, you chose to forgo a vacation day and head into work to take advantage of the quiet time. Or, perhaps you're spending some time at the CMA!

However you decide to spend your day, here are some fun works in our collection you may be able to relate to.
