“The Artistry of the Nativity” in the historic DeGolyer House returns with 500 crèches from over 50 countries representing so many cultures from around the world. In addition to the Ray Harrington and the Joe Christian collections, which the Arboretum owns, the private collections of Joyce and Larry Lacerte, Lydia and Dan Novakov, and a life-size crèche from Mary and Mike Terry, will also be on display.
This is a unique opportunity to see these crèches as they have never been on public display before. Each of the 500 crèches are made out of unique materials including cork, Waterford crystal, horns, seeds, cornhusk, glass, adobe, paper-mache, wood and coconut shells. In addition to the crèches, every room in the DeGolyer House will be elaborately decorated in holiday décor. The exhibit is also open Wednesday evenings, November 29-December 30, 6-9 p.m. For more information, visit www.dallasarboretum.org/holiday
