Shake It Up

New exhibit looks an awful lot like Grandma's house.

More than 800 sets of salt-and-pepper shakers (that’s 1,600 items total!) are on display in the Massillon Museum’s Shake, Shake, Shake -- a folksy exhibit that’s part Americana, part functional art, and part old-lady curio. The collection belonged to Doris Rohr, a local elementary-school cook who died a few years ago. The pieces -- which are made out of plastic, wood, and glass -- span the 20th century, and they’re shaped like fruits, vegetables, animals, musical instruments . . . pretty much anything you’d find around the house. Look for intricately crafted jalopies, baseball gloves, and irons -- way too cool to use for mere seasonings.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 2-5 p.m. Starts: June 5. Continues through May 31, 2007
