New Climate Change Exhibit in Portsmouth Features UNH Faculty, Students
The University of New Hampshire Department of Art and Art History will participate in a collaborative exhibition devoted to the theme of climate change that will run from October 21 to November 12, 2016 at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, N.H. Since last year, the department has been working with NextGen Climate NH and 3S Artspace to develop an exhibition of art works by current students, alumni, technical staff and faculty. All art works in “Rise: Climate Change in Our World” will address the topic of climate change. According to Prof. Craig Hood, chair of the Department of Art and Art History, the exhibition is an “unprecedented undertaking by the art department in collaboration with NextGen Climate 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.”
An opening reception will be held Friday, October 21, 2016 from 5-8 p.m.
Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday: 10am-6pm Saturday: 12-5PM Sunday+Monday: CLOSED
