Sara and David Lieberman, with their impeccable eye and passion for contemporary craft, have assembled one of the best collections of contemporary baskets in the country. Approximately 75 works will be on exhibit from the more than 150 works in their collection. The baskets are made from traditional, natural materials as well as commercial and often surprising media. Artists range from the regional to the international, and the collection includes both functional and sculptural forms.
