The University’s two museums, the UNH Museum in Dimond Library and the Museum of Art in the Paul Creative Arts Center, are collaborating on two disparate exhibits about the Earth’s polar regions. Evidence from early polar exploration up to the work of today’s researchers will be interpreted from the perspective of explorers, scientists, historians, and artists. Stories and works of art which document the grave dangers and the stark beauty of Antarctica and the Arctic highlight these fragile areas that are a bellwether of the planet’s future.
