Durable Beauty: Shaker Baskets from Shaker Museum

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Oct. 28

Shaker craftsmen were highly skilled and their products were an expression of their worldview. Labor was a form of worship and it was the duty of each believer to live purely and to strive for perfection in everything they did. At its peak in 1867, Mount Lebanon produced 3,866 baskets in a single year.
