Standing the Test of Time: Kentucky's White Oak Basket Tradition

Exhibition Website

Sep 17 2016 - Apr 8 2017

Baskets are made all over the world, reflecting the folk communities and environments from which they emerge. For generations of community members in and around Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave region, basketmaking has been a way of life. This exhibit of over 100 baskets explores the many facets of the white oak basketmaking tradition and honors the basketmakers, past and present, who have passed along their community-based knowledge to the next generation.
