Brian Kershisnik's Nativity was exhibited
at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts in 2008

          Measuring more than 7 feet high and 17 feet wide, the large-scale work depicts an intimate religious scene.  A host of sparkling angels crowd the sweeping canvas, displaying a range of emotions as they gather around Mary, Joseph, and the newly born baby Jesus. 
            Several of the angels cast their gazes toward the viewer, inviting the spectator to witness the holy moment among them.
