Members: $26.95 / Non-Members: $29.95


Product Description:

Published to accompany LUMA’s exhibition of the same name, this catalogue examines the spiritual and communal lives of the Shakers as expressed through their art, artifacts, music and communities. Brother Arnold Hadd, one of the last practicing Shakers, writes a brief introduction to his faith, while in five essays, leading scholars provide brief accounts of aspects of the history, music, spiritualism and mercantilism that make the Shakers the most unique and influential Christian utopian movement in the history of the United States to date.
