Carnegie Presepio 2018

2018 would be a good time to start a new holiday tradition and visit the Carnegie Museum of Art Trees & Presepio display.

Located in the Hall of  Architecture at CMOA, view five towering Colorado spruce trees, each adorned with handcrafted ornaments from the museum’s Women committee and collaborating organizations. The trees flank the museum’s exquisite 18th-century Neapolitan presepio Nativity scene, rare in US collections, together making up a cherished Pittsburgh tradition. Handcrafted between 1700 and 1830, the presepio is filled with lifelike figures and colorful details that re-create the Nativity within a vibrant and detailed panorama of 18th-century Italian village life.

Do yourself a favor and add this unique experience to your holiday calendar! If you are not a member of the museums, there is a charge to enter the museum. Visit CMOA for times and ticket prices. The display will be open from Nov. 30 through January 7.

I can tell my sister by the flowers in her eyes……….
