Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon is pleased to present Granary, a solo exhibition by artist Amie Cunat.
Installed at the Mount Lebanon historic site, Cunat’s work reimagines the Granary’s historic function by reconstructing its storage structures and elevator with paper materials and vibrant color choices. As the viewer traverses around the grain bins, one will find areas of its walls richly painted with imagery influenced by Shaker gift drawings.
The Granary, where the exhibition takes place, was built by the Shakers in 1838 to store oats, wheat barley, and rye and is a rare and early example of a commercial-sized granary on a farm.
Granary is on view from June 22 through October 14, 2019. For details on visiting the exhibition and the historic Mount Lebanon site, click here.
