Visitors to Niagara University’s Castellani Museum will get a glimpse of the region’s religious diversity now through Dec. 14.

A new exhibit, “Devotional Displays: Personal and Community Traditions,” features 30 photographs and three installations of folk religious displays that range from St. Joseph’s Day tables to Mexican Day of the Dead altars.

All of the displays were photographed or coordinated through the museum’s Regional Folk Arts Program during the last two decades.
