The Shakers: From Mount Lebanon to the World

Farnsworth Art Museum, June 14, 2014 - March 8, 2015 Rockland, Maine

In close collaboration with the Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon and Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine hosts a major exhibition on the Shakers. The exhibit draws primarily on the broad collection of items from Mount Lebanon, and focuses on the community as the spiritual and administrative center of Shaker life. Using this lens, the show will present a historical overview of Shaker religious, social and economic life. It is the first major exhibition to focus to such an extent on the Mount Lebanon Shaker society.
