Christmas Decorations: Bethlehem Tree, MMA

If you’re in Jackson, make sure to stop in at the Mississippi Museum of Art and see the Bethlehem Tree.

Jewell Younger Graeber of Marks, Mississippi, lovingly acquired the figures in this magnificent display over more than twenty years, in order to share the collection with the children of Mississippi. The installation in the Museum’s Trustmark Grand Hall includes more than 150 authentic and scarce eighteenth-century figures, and includes beloved religious figures Mary, Joseph, and the Three Magi, along with numerous angels and townspeople.
