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.

It’s going to be a creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, an altogether ooky Halloween night when you spend it with Gomez Addams, Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Kurt Weill, Thomas Wolfe, e.e. cummings, Ezra Pound and the usual suspects–also known as John Astin.  He’ll touch on the dark side of the human psyche as explored by some of his favorite authors for a chilling evening of theater.  Then, he’ll take you to the lighter side as he shares clips and stories from one of TVs most beloved comedies, The Addams Family.  He’ll give you a glimpse behind the scenes, discuss why it is such a cult classic and you’ll have the opportunity to ask him questions.  Come dressed in costume and enjoy a free Halloween treat at intermission!

Appropriate for all ages.

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.
