Zoom Lecture: Nantucket Lightship Baskets

November 6 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM EST

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

One of the enduring artforms of Nantucket is the lightship basket. This talk will include the early history of the baskets, made originally by men doing hazardous duty aboard the lightships that helped keep other mariners save. The talk will cover the materials and typical construction, as well as some atypical examples that force us to consider how best to define lightship baskets. The discussion will continue with the stories of some of the preeminent lightship basket artists. Speaker Jack Fritsch has provided his expertise to premiere New England auction galleries, nationally known museums, and private collections.
