Arboretum Features Artistry of the Nativity for Holiday Display




 

The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden presents Artistry of the Nativity at the DeGolyer House through December 31, with 500 crèches from more than 50 countries, representing 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 is made of unique materials such as cork, Waterford crystal, horns, seeds, corn husk, glass, adobe, papier-mâché, wood and coconut shells. In addition to the crèches, every room is elaborately decorated in holiday décor.
