CHI St. Alexius Health Williston is proud to share a meaningful holiday event with the community. Please join us for a guided tour of 100 handmade Nativities from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. You will experience folk art created in all the world’s colors and patterns, crafted from every material imaginable. The art reflects each artisan’s imagination of what the birth of baby Jesus would have looked like if it had occurred in locations from Cambodia to Cameroon to Colombia.
The artwork on display is part of a much larger collection that our hospital president, Garrick Hyde, has gathered over the past 20 years while doing humanitarian work. This exhibit will become an annual event, with different Nativities displayed each year. The World Nativities in Williston event is our gift to the community this holiday season.
CHI St. Alexius Health Williston would like to thank Garrick and his wife Ginger for showcasing these beautiful pieces and sharing them with our community. And, of course, much gratitude to our wonderful hospital volunteers for being our tour guides for this exciting daily event.
