    Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts

    Presented by at National Heritage Museum

    April 17, 2009 - June 7, 2010


    Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts

    "Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts," is a major new exhibition on view through June 7, 2009. The exhibition features over 100 works by 70 Massachusetts artists who preserve and revitalize deeply rooted traditions. Reflecting the populace of Massachusetts, their art takes many expressive forms-from Native American basketry to Yankee wooden boats, Armenian lace, Chinese seals, Puerto Rican santos, and Irish music and dance. Passed down from person to person within both long-settled and new immigrant communities, traditional art involves the shaping of deeply held cultural values into meaningful artistic forms.
