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

November 19, 2011 – January 15, 2012

Crèche-makers from around the world interpret the Nativity through the eyes of their own cultures. The story of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus has had great appeal as a story of a family facing hardship and hope. See how artists across the globe have depicted the Nativity by incorporating native clothing, art, and architecture.

Information on how to sponsor a crèche will be available later this year.

Please contact Ann Fruland, Assistant Director of Development, at 312.915.6719 or efruland@luc.edu.
