In a popular annual tradition, the Spencer Museum of Art’s 18th century Italian “Presepio” is currently on display. The nativity scene is in its original architectural setting of a ruined basilica. These figures are part of the collection donated to Kansas University by Sallie Casey Thayer in 1917 as the basis for the university’s art collection. The Spencer’s “Presepio” is said to be one of the finest examples of its kind in the United States.
