Since 2004, the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has collected nativities from around the world to complement the Trees of Diversity exhibit. The nativities, many donated by individuals or cultural organizations, showcase not only the diversity found in our community, but also the far corners of the globe residents have traveled.
This year’s Trees of Diversity exhibit continues a community tradition that started almost 20 years ago. Trees on display represent different countries and ethnic backgrounds as well as family traditions. Spread throughout the Utah Cultural Celebration Center and complimented by the Winter Scenes & Holiday Dreams exhibition, community wreaths, nativities, and other festive décor, the Trees of Diversity exhibit showcases the richness of culture in our community, both here and abroad.
This year’s Winter Scenes & Holiday Dreams exhibit features holiday, seasonal, Christmas, artworks by local Utah artists. Come visit and enjoy seasonal fine art while discovering Christmas trees decorated by cultural and community groups while you’re here. Wreaths, nativities, and other festive décor complement your 2023 holiday experience at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center.
