Since the first Art and Faith of the Crèche in 2007, the Crèche Sponsorship Program has become increasingly popular amongst our LUMA friends. 

Sponsoring a crèche in the exhibition is the perfect way to honor your heritage or that of a friend, or loved one during the upcoming holiday season. With a $150 sponsorship your name or that of whomever you designate will be 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.
