White Mountains focus of interactive pop-up museum
The Historical Society of Cheshire County is inviting people to take part in a pop-up museum on Wednesday.
A pop-up museum is a temporary exhibit created by the people who show up to participate. From 6 to 8 p.m. the public is invited to bring something related to the theme of “White Mountains” to share with others. It can be an object, a drawing, a story, or a photograph. Feel free to get creative. Participants will be encouraged to write labels for their items and leave them on display for the two-hour duration of the event.
The theme of “White Mountains” corresponds with the current art exhibition “Canvassing the White Mountains; Icons of Place” on view until Sept. 12. The exhibit features 47 historic paintings of the White Mountains and Mount Monadnock by leading American landscape painters from the 1800s and early 1900s. The painters were important in the development of American landscape art and the exhibit shows how they helped shape American views of and reactions to wilderness and nature.
