Spanish Nativity Exhibit Extended into January
Providence, R.I.--Due to popular demand, the Providence College Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies (CCDS) has extended the display of the Spanish Nativity crèche exhibit through January 9.
The exhibit, which opened in late November, originally was scheduled to close on December 19.
Located in the CCDS in Aquinas Hall, the exhibit will on display from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays when the College is open: Wednesday and Thursday, December 21 and 22; Tuesday through Thursday, December 27-29; Tuesday through Friday, January 3-6; and Monday, January 9.
The exhibit is owned and arranged by David M. Cabral, PC professor of theatre arts. It features dozens of figurines and other artistic creations built abroad or by Cabral himself.
The crèche encompasses many key moments in the Christmas Story. It begins with annunciation of Mary and continues with the journey to Bethlehem, the apparition of the angel to the shepherds, the journey of the three kings, Herod and the slaughter of the innocents, and the flight of the holy family into Egypt.
Groups are welcome to view the exhibit but are asked to call the CCDS in advance at 401-865-2870.
