As the newest member of the NH Heritage Museum Trail, Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art is excited to showcase its stunning collection—which includes works by Picasso, Monet, O’Keefe, Wyeth, and LeWitt—to an even wider audience.
“We at the Currier are very excited to be joining such an impressive and inspiring group of likeminded institutions,” noted Tracey Carrier, Membership and Guest Services Manager for the Currier. “We know our community is strengthened when we work together and there’s a lot of crossover between our audiences.”
In keeping with its mission of “providing stimulating, diverse and enjoyable encounters with original works of art,” Carrier believes the Currier is a seamless fit within The Trail community.
“Our visitors tend to be both interested and interesting–and there’s a lot to do, see, learn and celebrate here in New Hampshire,” she said. “We’ve enjoyed learning about the other Museums in the NH Heritage Museum Trail group. Seeing the variety of what’s available right here in our backyard—history, people, art—it’s a veritable treasure hunt.”
As a museum dedicated to high standards of exhibition, preservation, research, interpretation and enhancement, the Currier has become an important linchpin in New Hampshire’s cultural landscape.
Now through September 4, the Currier is showcasing works by Varujan Boghosian, a 91-year-old New Hampshire artist renowned for his work in sculpting, collage, and watercolor. Visitors may also currently enjoy an exhibit, “Monet: Pathways to Impressionism,” which includes four of the artist’s earlier works alongside paintings by American impressionists influenced by Monet.
Upcoming exhibits at the Currier include The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec, which opens on September 30. Drawn from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the exhibit will present more than 100 posters, prints and illustrated books of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
