Nativities of the World Exhibit
December 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
One event on December 1, 2019 at 11:00 am
On November 30 and December 1, the Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center will sponsor an exhibit of over 350 Nativity sets from around the world. The nativities will be on display at the Desert Foothills Library from 10-4 on Saturday and from 11-3 on Sunday. They are all on loan from local artists, collectors and families. These cherished sets have been made from every imaginable material, from fine porcelain to craft sticks, rocks, gourds and even banana skins. Some are quite large, requiring a table to themselves, while others would fit easily in the palm of your hand. They represent the work of local Carefree artists as well as craftspeople from Alaska to Zanzibar. The display is always changing and growing.
If you have a Nativity set you would like to share with the community for a few days, or you would like more information about the display, please contact the
organizers at [email protected], or call Karen at 480-236-9668. Admission to the exhibit is free, however a donation of nonperishable food or cash to the Food Bank will help those in need in our community at this holiday season.
