15th Annual Nativity Exhibit Visitors to the Creche

Save the Date! 15th Annual Nativity Exhibit  “Mixed Company ~ Visitors to the Creche” Curator: Ellen Mintz Regular hours Sunday through Thursday are 9am-5pm; Fridays, Saturdays, 9am-9pm. Although the Birth was a private event, witnessed only by the animals who shared their shelter, word soon spread bringing visitors of all sorts. Depictions of the Birth are often populated with an interesting variety of people and animals and these add color to the story. This year we will feature many of these visitors and learn what their presence revealed about the Christmas celebration over time. Please join us for this year’s display and programs. We are delighted to open our grounds this season and to celebrate this beloved season. Call for specific hours or to arrange a program.
