December 4, 2010 – January 16, 2011

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