The Haggerty Museum of Art invites all members of the Marquette community to visit and enjoy a special exhibition of ten “Old Master” paintings from the museum’s collection that address the nativity of Jesus.  

Old Master paintings refer to pieces done by artists who worked in Europe before about 1800.

The museum will be open through Wednesday, Dec. 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 pm. The Haggerty is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
