Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from Mexico
December 9, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from Mexico presents the tradition of Nacimientos that survives in present-day Mexico as a visual amalgam of indigenous pre-Colombian and Spanish Colonial representations. The exhibition features a rich tradition of handmade Nacimientos from the Museum’s permanent collection and loans from Edwin R. Jordan; many of the nativity scenes in a variety of materials depict a reflection of Mexico’s landscape, such as cacti, turkeys, and market scenes.
