The State Library in Concord has completed renovations in its second floor Map Room and, this summer the public will find an exhibit there called “Shaping our Heritage: Celebrating Traditional Arts Apprenticeships in New Hampshire.”
The first thing you notice when you walk into the State Library’s map room is the natural light. It pours in from the white laminate skylights of the arched coffered ceiling. Every item on display, lining the perimeter walls and the center installations, is accompanied by photographs of the artists always in pairs.

“It wasn’t just the pledge. It’s the manner in which we anticipate Jackie will lead.”
