Celebrate the Holidays with LUMA

This winter, LUMA continues its beloved holiday celebration of presenting Art and Faith of the Crèche: The Collection of James and Emilia Govan. The seventh annual exhibition will be on view from November 14, 2015–January 10, 2016.

The collection of James and Emilia Govan includes more than 500 crèches from 100 countries. Talented craftspeople and artists from around the world share their creative interpretations of the Nativity through native architecture, clothing, flora and fauna.

Since the first Art and Faith of the Crèche in 2007, the Crèche Sponsorship Program has become increasingly popular amongst our LUMA friends. We are happy to extend to you an early opportunity to participate, so you get your first country of choice!

Sponsoring a crèche in the exhibition is the perfect way to honor your heritage, a friend, or loved one during the upcoming holiday season. The $150 sponsorship gives you the ability to have the name(s) of your choosing displayed on the label of your sponsored crèche. Your sponsorship helps us to care for this special collection and present this wonderful exhibition each year.

Crèche of the Year

The 2015 Crèche of the Year is from Sicily and was selected in honor of Rev. Michael J. Garanzini, S.J. Placed in a prominent location in the museum and displayed throughout the fall, this one-of-a-kind crèche sponsorship is available for $5,000.
