The Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) at Loyola University Chicago, opened in 2005 with the unique mission of “exploring the spiritual in art” so as to advance the understanding and appreciation of the creative spirit. Affirming our University community’s great diversity, LUMA seeks through its exhibitions and programs to investigate the commonalities all faith share and to visually reinforce the Jesuit ideal of “finding God in all things.”

Join LUMA for the eighth year of the museum’s annual holiday exhibition. The story of Mary, Joseph, and the Christ Child has great appeal throughout the world as a story of a family facing hardship with hope. See how artists across the globe depict the Nativity.

Remarkable in its variety of media and scale, this generous gift from James and Emilia Govan is a memorable tradition for families of all nationalities.
