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 LUMA Crèche of the Year recognized the work of Francesco Scarlatella, This beautiful, Sicilian crèche is a small masterpiece that makes reference to the great Baroque sculptures of the 17th century
