Plymouth State University, Museum of the White Mountains

In its newest exhibition, Plymouth State University’s Museum of the White Mountains explores connections between geological history and recreation in the White Mountains. The exhibition is curated by Sarah Garlick, a New Hampshire-based writer and science educator.

The exhibition features ultra-high resolution panoramic photographs (Gigapans) of Cannon Cliff, the Franconia Ridge and the east side of Mt. Washington. These panoramas span nearly entire walls of the gallery and are featured in a touch-screen digital exhibit.

The exhibition includes topics like the connection of a geologic event such as a landslide and how that event precipitates activities such as backcountry skiing and ice climbing. It also explains the impact of the Ice Age on the region, and the science behind the formation and eventual destruction of the Old Man of the Mountain.

The museum, located at 34 Highland Street in Plymouth, is open for regular hours Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public for self-guided tours. Contact Libby Griffiths at (603) 535-3210 or egriffiths@plymouth.edu to discuss and schedule group visits.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.

What is it like to work as part of an artist collective?

The Beehive Collective has traveled to and worked with groups around the world, translating complex global stories into collaboratively drawn images that take on a life of their own. Their most recently printed graphic, Mesoamérica Resiste, was nine years in the making. This large-format narrative illustration tells stories of grassroots organizing and community resilience from Mexico to Colombia and also celebrates cultural and ecological diversity. This exhibit will inspire us to imagine the diverse ways that the arts can motivate and activate local and global communities. Curated by the PSU Museum Studies class, led by Professor of Art History Jayme Yahr.
