2016 Exhibit: Creation, Common Good - on the Encyclical of Pope Francis Laudato Si'


Saturday, January 16, at 16:00, we gave the green light to the 2016 exhibit entitled "Creation, Common Good", on caring for our common home.

Our museum offers images, objects, phrases, new and ancient artifacts, for visitors, schools and groups, to reflect on the beauty of nature, the need to overcome the culture of waste, and to promote human ecology. We know: we are wasteful!

The 2016 exhibit, with objects, phrases, videos and photos of various countries of the world, and with educational videos, follows the multicultural approach of the museum of Chinese Art and Ethnography of the Xaverian Missionaries, targeting schools of every kind and degree.

The exhibit “Creation, Common Good” is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00am-2:00pm, for the entire school year.
