NH Humanities-NH History program
November 28 @ 6:30 PM
White Mountains and Benjamin Champney
This 19th-century artist was in the vanguard of the movement to develop a uniquely American style of art. While working in his studio in North Conway, he created stunning landscape paintings and mentored a generation of artists who helped make the White Mountains famous the world over.
Oh, the stories we could tell! For such a small state, New Hampshire has a remarkable history, full of interesting people, creative inventions, daring adventures, and astounding beauty. In honor of the New Hampshire Historical Society’s 200th anniversary, Society staffers are touring the state and sharing a collection of stories that capture the iconic spirit of New Hampshire, paired with images from the Society’s collections. The stories at this event will include the White Mountains and the story of NH artist, Benjamin Champney. This program is free and presented through the Humanities to Go program of New Hampshire Humanities.
