It has been a while since the last major exhibition on Shaker design and architecture. Now, the Loyola University Museum of Art presents "Order in All Things: Community and Identity in Shaker Architecture," a survey of buildings constructed by or for the Shakers, from the 18th to the 20th century. Shaker spirituality sought to order one's life away from the temptations of the world and towards heaven. This was expressed in Shaker architecture and varied from community to community. The exhibit will explore a variety of Shaker styles found in 15 of its past and current communities throughout the United States and highlight their similarities and differences. The exhibit will demonstrate how the Shakers' built environment reflected their desire to promote piety, prosperity, and a communal identity. Here are some wonderful images that captures the Shaker's aesthetics.
