Art continues to serve a central purpose in our society and is integral to everyday life
and education. From the process of creating to the experience of artworks, art is a
universal language that expresses the needs of all ages. Living in rural New Hampshire
can be isolating and arts experiences oftentimes are the pathways to creating community.
This exhibition includes work from northern New Hampshire’s high school, college, and
community education students. Co-curated by PSU interdisciplinary studies student
Sarah Connor ’20.
