Nativity Trail

30th November 2012 to 6th January 2013 at  Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

Follow the trail and discover images of the Christmas Story.  The Nativity Trail highlights masterpieces in the city’s collection that depict the holy family as seen through the eyes of artists over the last 500 years.

An ideal talking point and something to take your friends, guests and family to over the Christmas break and supported by churches in Birmingham.

Details from their website:

The Nativity Art Trail is an annual event at the Museum & Art Gallery and was launched by the Right Rev. David Urquhart, Bishop of Birmingham, the Most Rev. Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham at 2pm on the afternoon of Friday, 30th November. School choirs from Christ the King Catholic Primary School and St John’s Church of England Primary School sang throughout the afternoon as part of the event, all  welcomed this year by Professor Ann Sumner, Director of Birmingham Museums Trust.

Now in its eighth year, the trail is free to view and open to the public from 30 November – 6 January. It features favourites such as The Star of Bethlehem by Edward Burne-Jones, which depicts the star that guided the three wise men or Kings of the Christmas story to the baby Jesus. In Burne-Jones’ work it is represented as a shining light held in the hands of an angel.

The Museum and Art Gallery is closed on 24, 25, 26 December.
