Trees of Diversity Exhibit

For seven years the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has featured a holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the Celebration Gallery, and throughout the entire facility. Each year the number of groups involved, including arts, cultural, non-profit and commercial, has grown and grown. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring the community together in the celebration of various holiday traditions not only from different countries but from different religious backgrounds and various family or community traditions. The tree is used as a sign of friendship and is used to display the art and artifacts representing the richness of our community traditions.Trees of Diversity, Utah Cultural Celebration Center, West Valley Utah

This year the Trees of Diversity exhibition will have over 25 trees and holiday scenes created by various community and ethnic groups. Included are Amish, Honduran, American Indian, Chilean, Peruvian and other South American countries, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Africa, Hawaii, Scotland and others. The Cultural Center will also be displaying artifacts and other historical items from around the world, along with art pieces, nativities, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, special holiday “store window” scenes, sculptures and wreaths. Two special displays will highlight holiday traditions in both the Jewish and Muslim communities, and the 100+ Dolls from Around the World collection will once again be on display.

Helping kick off the exhibit is SongFest! a night of musical entertainment for everyone. Scheduled to perform are Christmas Bell Ringers, The Beehive Statesmen, The Salt Lake Men’s Choir and the West Valley Symphony. The magical sights and sounds of the holidays are sure to get the whole family ready to celebrate this special time of year, and to learn about other holiday traditions from around the world.
