Virtual Tour – Museum of the White Mountains

Join Cynthia Cutting, Director of the Museum of the White Mountains, for a virtual tour of the Museum of the White Mountains exhibit: Endangered Invasive and Undiscovered [Species]

This exhibition features environmental artwork from Kimberly Ritchie’s recent sabbatical experiences in Greece and Iceland. The exhibit also highlights faculty led, student made, collaborative work from interdisciplinary projects across campus, involving the intersection of the human race and the natural world that impacts endangered, invasive, undiscovered, and evolving species.

Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at the exhibition. Art meets science as artist Kimberly Ritchie, evolutionary botanist Dr. Diana Jolles, and graduate student Hannah Vollmer discuss their perspectives and the connections between their work as it appears in Endangered Invasive Undiscovered [Species].

Our GSAs enjoyed the experience of learning more about the museum and the artwork.  Many are looking forward to visiting when the museum opens back up.  Here’s what some of our GSAs had to say about the presentation:

“Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a tour of the museum’s latest exhibit.  I particularly enjoyed seeing the cyanotype pieces.  I first created pieces like this when I was a kid at summer camp and then again in a junior garden club.  Will have to give it a go again!”

“Thanks so much for taking the time to share that amazing museum exhibit with the Granite State Ambassadors. I had visited the museum before and was interested in seeing how the space was transformed. I am an amateur wildflower “geek” and have aspirations of creating my own herbarium based on my travels. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“Thank you so much for hosting us for this tour. It is so nice to be able to see new things while having to stay home. I really enjoyed the cut relief on wires as part of the Undiscovered Species area. They were beautiful.”

“Thank you very much for the wonderful tour of the “Endangered Invasive Undiscovered [Species] Exhibit”.  It was really interesting looking at all the creative ways to create art using objects found in the environment.  Kimberly Ritchie is a very creative artist with an interesting way of expressing her experiences in Greece and Iceland.”

Thank you, Cynthia, for a wonderful presentation!
