This year Glencairn Museum celebrates the ten-year anniversary of our annual World Nativities exhibition. Dozens of three-dimensional Nativity scenes from around the world reveal how artists adapt the Nativity story to represent their own spiritual, intellectual, cultural, and regional environments. Settings for the Nativities have been created by Bryn Athyn artist Kathleen Glenn Pitcairn. Visitors will have the opportunity to Meet the Artists in a special section of the exhibition devoted to the work and lives of ten people who make Nativities. On selected days Nativity artists will be available to meet with visitors and demonstrate their artistic techniques (stay tuned to our website and social media feeds for details).
