A Tour of NH History Through Art

The library will host "From Anonymous to Aponovich: New Hampshire History and Art" on Wednesday, February 27, at 7 p.m. Docents from the soon-to-reopen Currier Museum of Art in Manchester will present a tour of the Granite State through the eyes of its artists. "Anonymous" refers to the unnamed artists of the colony's earliest history. "Aponovich" refers to New Hampshire's acclaimed visual artist, James Aponovich, of Hancock. All the in-between will be revealed at the program.

The Currier closed for a major expansion project in June 2006. A 30,000 sq. ft. addition will allow more gallery space, classrooms for school visits, and more space for special events and exhibitions. The new, improved Currier, which will reopen on Sunday, March 30, will offer a more comfortable and spacious environment for enjoying New Hampshire's art treasures.

But don't wait until then. Come and sample New Hampshire's history and art with us on February 27. Space is limited, and we recommend you reserve a seat. Call us at 424-5021 or email.
