The museum’s newest acquisition, the Elaine Ehrenkranz Basket Collection, will feature 80+ antique baskets from Native people around the world including North, Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Ehrenkranz had a lifelong interest in baskets, and she actively collected them from Native people living in all parts of the world. Most of all, she loved the process of learning about the art she collected and sharing that information with students, collectors and anyone interested in her collections.  Check the Museum calendar for many programs and activities relating to baskets throughout the Main Season.

An immersive environmental exhibit, The Changing Landscape, will tell the story of Fruitlands’ connection to the Land using maps, historical farm implements, archaeological materials recovered from the property, a variety of plant samples as well as details about land management techniques practiced at Fruitlands. Educational and interpretive materials will highlight how this living collection is both part of the historical past as well as an actively managed landscape. Watch our calendar for environmental education programs that will spotlight this magnificent resouce.
