The department of art and art history will participate in a collaborative exhibition devoted to the theme of climate change that will run from Oct. 21 to Nov. 12 at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth.
Featuring art by current students, alumni, technical staff and faculty, all of the works in “Rise: Climate Change in Our World” address the topic of climate change.
Art department chair Craig Hood describes the exhibition as an unprecedented undertaking by the art department — a collaboration with NextGen Climate NH, the environmental advocacy organization that proposed the exhibition, and 3S Artspace, a major art institution in southeastern New Hampshire.
“We think the topic is important, of course, and we hope this sort of collaboration with groups and institutions outside the university community will become a more regular occurrence for our program in the future,” Hood says.
