Younger Foundation Crèche and Bethlehem Tree Collection at the Mississippi Museum of Art
The Mississippi Museum of Art will open a new Christmas-themed exhibition called the Younger Foundation Crèche and Bethlehem Tree Collection on Saturday, Dec. 4.
The collection is named for Jewell Younger Graeber, a native of Marks, Miss., who began collecting items after viewing the Angel Tree nativity exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in 1985.
Graeber’s daughter, Oxford native Gay Graeber Stubbs, now curates the exhibition, which includes more than 150 authentic 18th-century neapolitan angel and nativity figurines in an Italian crèche setting. "Créche" is derived from the French word for manger. The figures in the Younger Collection are made of metal wrapped in hemp, with heads and shoulders made from painted terracotta, glass eyes and wooden feet and hands. In addition to the traditional figures of Mary, Joseph, Jesus and the Three Magi, the collection includes a host of angels and more than 75 townspeople.
MMA will launch the exhibit alongside a Christmas tree unveiling ceremony on Friday, Dec. 3. The Younger Foundation Crèche and Bethlehem Tree Collection will remain on display through Jan. 4, 2022. For more information, call 601-960-1515 or visit msmuseumart.org.
