Only a week left to visit the extraordinary exhibition: “The Shakers and the Modern World” at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester (ends Feb 16, 2020).
This exhibition is a beautifully crafted show with a blending of form, style, and color that is a feast for the imagination and an education in New Hampshire, U.S., and world history all at once. (On display through February 16, 2020).
Most of us think of the Shakers as a quaint sect of religious believers some of whom lived in New Hampshire in the towns of Canterbury and Enfield. However, the Shakers have had an outsized influence on the modern world, from commercial washing machines to the very first seed company, and the well-known and beloved furniture that continues to define their influence.
In this episode, Number 14, of New Hampshire Secrets, Legends & Lore Shaker historian and official NH Secrets historian Darryl Thompson shares some insights into the themes of Shaker life that continue to echo down through the years.
