Hood Museum

Michele L'heureux

New Hampshire is known for its natural beauty, and this is certainly the perfect time of year to enjoy it, but equally enticing are the artistic vistas on view at the many museums and galleries located throughout the state.  What could be better on a hot (or rainy) day than an hour or so of tempered air and a glimpse into another world, real or imagined? 

Here are five summer exhibits to mark on your calendar.  Visit the NHPR Community Calendar for more events.
