Rise: Climate Change in Our World
Exhibition Dates: October 21 – November 12
Opening Reception: October 21, 5-8pm
The University of New Hampshire Department of Art and Art History will participate this fall in a collaboration devoted to the theme of climate change. Since last year the department has been working with NextGen Climate NH and 3S to develop an exhibition of art works by current students, alumni, technical staff, and faculty to be exhibited from October 21 to November 12, 2016.
According to Prof. Craig Hood, Chair of the Department of Art and Art History, the exhibition is an “unprecedented undertaking by the art department, a collaboration with NextGen NH, an environmental advocacy organization which proposed the idea for the exhibition, and 3S Artspace, a major art institution in southeastern New Hampshire. We think the topic is important, of course, and hope this sort of collaboration with groups and institutions outside the university community will become a more regular occurrence for our program in the future.”
