“Forest to Forest: Bicknell’s Thrush,” a cluster project exhibit at the Museum of the White Mountains

January 30 - February 21

Forest to Forest: Bicknell’s Thrush

January 30 – February 21, 2018
Opening Reception: January 30, 5-7pm

A cluster project exhibit designed to increase awareness and conservation action for this bird and its habitat.

The Bicknell’s Thrush, a rare bird that breeds in the White Mountains inspired this multi-year, multiphase international cluster project and interdisciplinary exhibit. This exhibit examines issues like land management, deforestation, New Hampshire tourism, economic development, gender studies, and international environmental, social, and political impact. PSU students have been involved in the project, interacting with key partners, and developing effective conservation advocacy initiatives related to this special bird.

The exhibit will include Cortada’s Bicknell’s Thrush painting, created during his artist’s residency at the White Mountains in 2012.
