Art and Faith of the Crèche: The Collection of James and Emilia Govan

November 14, 2015–January 10, 2016

Join LUMA for the eighth year of the museum’s annual holiday exhibition. The story of Mary, Joseph, and the Christ Child has great appeal throughout the world as a story of a family facing hardship with hope. See how artists across the globe depict the Nativity. From Armenia to Zimbabwe, learn how artists recreate the scene with clothing, architecture, and figures from their native lands. Remarkable in its variety of media and scale, this generous gift from James and Emilia Govan is a memorable tradition for families of all nationalities.
