Using art, letters, maps, clothing and photographs, the Museum of the White Mountains' latest exhibition will explore the role of women in shaping and popularizing the White Mountains region. The exhibit highlights paintings by both female and male artists on loan from regional collectors and contemporary artists, an assortment of period photographs, and technological and hands-on experiences. It also focuses attention to beautiful and touchable replica hiking costumes created by Terri Dautcher and Rebecca Fullerton, showing the great number of heavy layers women wore while hiking in earlier periods.
