Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon has received a $25,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to support a comprehensive review of its collections. This grant follows on the tail of a $750,000 grant the Museum received from the Luce Foundation in 2016 to support a two and a half year project to catalog and digitize its collections and put the results online. That project was completed on time and on budget at the end of 2018 and its results can be seen online.
Shane Rothe (they/them) joined Shaker Museum in July 2023, working with independent curator Maggie Taft on an exhibition for the new museum space in Chatham. Shane is an artist as well as a curator and continues to create in the mediums of painting, sculpture, writing, and performance. Shane holds a BFA from CalArts and an MA in art history and curatorial studies from the University of Chicago.
