Woven Near and Far: Baskets from Historic Northampton
curated by Bethany Basal, Erin Carr and Kelly O'Connor
Thanks to the generosity of Valley Gives Day 2016 donors, baskets in the collection of Historic Northampton were individually cleaned, photographed and catalogued by three summer interns from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. The interns also rehoused the collection on new shelving.
The interns curated an exhibition of the basket collection, Woven Near and Far: Baskets from Historic Northampton, on view in Gallery II. Watch short videos of each step of the process in the gallery or on the museum's facebook page.
