Spanish Nativity Exhibit on Display at Providence College
Providence, R.I.--The Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies (CCDS) at Providence College is hosting a Spanish Nativity exhibit that is open to the public during the Advent season.
The exhibit is a large, continual crèche with dozens of figurines and other artistic creations. The crèche encompasses many key moments in the Christmas Story, including the Annunciation, the Journey to Bethlehem, and Herod and the Slaughter of the Innocents.
The exhibit, which is located in the CCDS in Aquinas Hall on the main campus, has been arranged by David M. Cabral, PC professor of theatre arts. Cabral has collected the Spanish figurines and similar artworks over several years and is exhibiting them publicly for the first time.
The exhibit will be on display weekdays through Monday, December 19. CCDS hours are 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
Groups are welcome to view the exhibit but are asked to call the CCDS in advance at 401-865-2870.
