Each of these four exhibits delightfully depict Christmas and seasonal celebrations in over a dozen countries. All four exhibits are similar in content and countries represented. Customs unique to various cultures and countries are depicted in the artwork. Each exhibit is accompanied by a list of the children, their country, age, and comments by the children about their artwork. The artwork in these exhibits was produced by children ranging in age from six to eighteen. Many of the pieces were contributed by the Christian Children's Fund. The beauty, humor, imagination, local settings and various interpretations of this special season make these exhibits as enjoyable to view as they were for the children to create. These exhibits have been shown at the Rockford Discovery Center, Door County Auditorium, BroMenn Regional Medical Center, Loyola University Medical Center and numerous other institutions throughout the country.
"Christmas Around the World, I" is a thirty-piece exhibit, and "Christmas Around the World, II, III, and IV" are twenty-piece exhibits.
