The infant Jesus, the gentle mother Mary,
the steadfast Joseph, the resplendent angels,
the shepherds with their lambs, the little manger,
the cows and the donkeys ~
this familiar story from the New Testament has generated
a priceless heritage of paintings over the ages of Western art.
Each year, Professor Fredlund brings
new artists and new images
for this popular presentation that has become
a tradition at the Institute and a wonderful way
to enter into the beauty of Christmas!
