    Approximately 100 crèches from around the world will be on display. This annual tradition began when Beulah Munshower Sommer, Class of 1944, donated a portion of her extensive crèche collection to the College. She began collecting nativity scenes as a child and continued collecting them throughout her adult life as a world traveler. One of the attractions of this crèche display has been the diversity of styles, cultures and artistry represented. Additions to the collection are welcome.

    The exhibit will also be featured as part of Visit Frederick’s Museums By Candlelight event Dec. 8 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
