NEH on the Road: Wild Land

Ancillary public humanities programs to accompany the NEH on the Road: Wild Land traveling exhibition.

Keene State College is honored to host the Thomas Cole Wild Land traveling exhibition. Thomas Cole was a significant influence on the artists of the region, especially those from the 19th century Dublin Art colony. Since the early 1800???s, the area around Mount Monadnock, which is in nearby Dublin NH, was a Mecca for artists, writers and other intellectuals. The Monadnock region has a long tradition of landscape painting and the appreciation of the natural world, which continues to this day. This programming grant will allow us to provide supplemental programming to highlight the exhibit and deepen its impact.
