The official opening of the Museum of the White Mountains is scheduled for February 2013 and will include gallery, exhibition, and classroom space, an auditorium, state-of-the-art digital learning resources, interpretive trail, and meeting space. Poised at the entrance to the White Mountain National Forest and benefitting from PSU’s educational, archival, and curatorial resources, the Museum of the White Mountains is uniquely suited to gathering and preserving important historical, technical, and cultural artifacts of the region for public and scholarly access. The museum was established with the donation of a remarkable collection of artifacts by the late Daniel Noel of Intervale, NH.
Museum director Catherine Amidon has an extensive background in regional cultural arts curation and gallery direction. The Museum of the White Mountains is of particular interest to her owing to both her New England roots and lifetime history of outdoor recreation in the White Mountains.
Lindsay Burke, collections assistant, has twin interests in exhibit design and installation, and collection organization, cataloguing, and care.
