On view through September 29, 2018
Did you know that the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire was founded 35 years ago? 35 years means we’ve enjoyed seeing a lot of great art, not only created by our visitors, but also by professional artists who have generously shown their work here! Gallery 6 is celebrating the museum’s long history of creative collaboration with a special summer exhibition and raffle. 35 artists from around New England, who have helped inspire and shape the museum with their creativity, have donated works of art that will be on view all summer. And it gets better! You can buy raffle tickets for a chance to win your favorite work of art the next time you visit. A sheet of 20 raffle tickets only costs $5, or you can get 5 sheets for $20. As you go around with your kids to pick your favorites, it’s a great opportunity to not only take a stroll down memory lane, but to also talk about art! We will be pulling the winning tickets on Sunday, September 30 at 2pm. You don’t have to be present to win. You will have 2 weeks after the winners are announced to pick up the artwork. Raffle tickets can only be purchased at the front desk of the museum. All proceeds raised will fund new and enhanced exhibits.
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.
