In our weekly video series "Art That Surrounds Us," Johan van Parys, Ph.D., our Director of Liturgy and Sacred Arts, shares information about a piece from The Basilica of Saint Mary's art collection. This week, Johan discusses our late 15th Century painting Adoration of the Magi, which was donated to The Basilica by the Lahiff family in the 1970s from the art collection of their family member Elizabeth Quinlan, founder of the Young-Quinlan companies.

This week we are on location at Johan's home, and he shares information and anecdotes about his personal nativity collection, acquired over a number of years, which spans many countries, ethnicities, mediums and artistic styles. "The wonderful thing about nativities," he says, "is that throughout the world people have depicted the nativity scene in their own image."
Our next episode of Art That Surrounds Us will be available the week of January 4.
