The Small World of Shaker: Miniature Furniture, Books & Dolls

Mount Lebanon, July 19 to September 7, 2015

Fascination with miniaturizing familiar objects has always been part of being human. The Shakers have a history of making and selling dolls and doll clothing, printing and reading miniature books, and, in the 1950s, helping to furnish a doll house for the Museum's education use. This exhibition features items made by the Shakers and miniatures by artists inspired by Shaker objects.
