13 Moons: An Abenaki Child's Year
March 14 - end of May, 2023
This art exhibition features the every day life of a child living in an Abenaki village prior to the arrival of Europeans. “Thirteen Moons – An Abenaki Child’s Year” uses photography, drawings, diagrams, scale models and stories/myths that illustrate the Abenaki experience. The art exhibition is structured around the thirteen months of the lunar calendar.
Gallery 6 is supported by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, Georgia-Pacific, TD Charitable Foundation and the Fuller Foundation.
Gallery 6 Mission
Gallery 6 exhibitions celebrate and promote the arts in New Hampshire and beyond. The gallery space is designed to blend into the Children's museum of New Hampshire Studio space where children's artwork hangs, connecting the playful creativity of children to the serious investigations of artists. Our high-caliber exhibitions are often based on a theme that has relevance to other Children's Museum of New Hampshire exhibits, that promotes creativity or is of particular interest to families.
The Children's Museum of New Hampshire schedules 4-6 exhibits a year and has these exhibitions planned many months in advance.
Gallery 6 is open during regular Children's Museum of New Hampshire hours and there is no charge to view the exhibit. (Those wishing to visit the rest of the Children's Museum of New Hampshire as well must pay regular admission.)
Coming Soon to Gallery 6...
