MOSAIC – Exploring Our Multicultural Neighborhood IMMIGRANT ALPHABET
March 9 – May 28, 2018
Opening reception: Friday, May 4, 5-7pm
The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s spring Gallery 6 art exhibition is part of the MOSAIC – Exploring Our Multicultural Neighborhood program, which aims to promote appreciation and inclusion of other cultures through the arts. The art on view in the gallery exhibition, titled Immigrant Alphabet, presents the stories, background and aspects of the cultures of recent immigrants and individuals from the community whose ancestors immigrated to this country in the past. Using the letters of the alphabet as a frame of reference for our young visitors, the art focuses on the unique contributions these families have made to the community and the richness derived from having a diverse population.
Gallery 6 Mission
Gallery 6 exhibitions celebrate and promote the arts in New Hampshire and beyond. The gallery space is designed to blend into the Children's museum of New Hampshire Studio space where children's artwork hangs, connecting the playful creativity of children to the serious investigations of artists. Our high-caliber exhibitions are often based on a theme that has relevance to other Children's Museum of New Hampshire exhibits, that promotes creativity or is of particular interest to families.
The Children's Museum of New Hampshire schedules 4-6 exhibits a year and has these exhibitions planned many months in advance.
Gallery 6 is open during regular Children's Museum of New Hampshire hours and there is no charge to view the exhibit. (Those wishing to visit the rest of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire as well must pay regular admission.)
Gallery 6 is supported by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, Georgia-Pacific and the Fuller Foundation.
