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 to discuss and schedule group visits.

Lamson Learning Commons Art Display Wall

Route 66, also known as the road to opportunity, linked Chicago to Los Angeles between 1926 and the mid 1950?s. The road functions as a metaphorical bridge, connecting the country socially and culturally, bringing people to California. As people migrated along the route, it served as a cultural conduit, transporting ideas, progressive thinking, and diversity westward.

Portfolio exchange participants are asked to provide their own take on Route 66 Westbound to Paradise, taking into consideration Route 66, the road to opportunity as a catalyst for social change.

The print portfolio exchange was curated by artist Fawn Atencio of Denver, CO. For more information, visit the Lamson Learning Commons website.

What does it mean for art to be socially engaged? Can art help us find the vision to move through today’s world?

This audience-participatory installation examines the tensions, fears, and illusions promoted by the corporate media and the stories of individuals struggling to make sense of this economic and political moment, while inviting viewers to participate in a game that playfully explores the perils and rewards of activism. Beverly Naidus’s art practice intertwines the roles of activist, educator, writer, and interdisciplinary artist.
