    Stories of the Crèche: The Collection of James and Emilia Govan will be on display at Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA). This Chicago favorite will exhibit crèches, or nativity scenes, from more than 40 countries and features a Chicago nativity complete with the Chicago skyline and Holy Name Cathedral. The free exhibition is open to the public from November 30 through January 5, Wednesdays through Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. LUMA will not be open December 24 through January 1, 2020 in observation of the University holiday break.

    This year's selection of LUMA's unique crèches celebrates the birth of Christ around the world and explores the stories that are told through the crèche. Follow the journey of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus. While going through the galleries you will see how that story grows to include the angel, shepherds, star, wise men, the three kings, and more.
