It was our first visit since the Currier re-opened last spring after building a large addition to the building.
I love this bench outside. It's part of a special exhibition featuring Gary Haven Smith and Gerald Auten on display until mid-September.
The rear door of the Currier Museum was surrounded by a mosaic before the new gallery space was added. Now, with the addition, the mosaic is prominently featured in the Winter Garden Cafe in the middle of the museum.
Across the Winter Garden Cafe, a large painting and the new gallery space await.
We spent a few enjoyable hours wandering through the museum.
It's always great to see tapestry.
If you click to enlarge this picture, you can get details about the tapestry.
The collection of furniture includes this corner cabinet full of pewter.
The atrium of the old museum building is still beautiful - with its mosaic floor.
The medallion in the floor appears to be the zodiac.
Heading out, I did a tiny bit of shopping in the gift shop.
Another special exhibit, the work of David Macaulay is closing on June 14, 2009. He has written and illustrated a number of interesting books, including this book Mill about textile mills in New England. I loved it and purchased a copy of my own.
Any book that explains physics, history and even a bit about weaving to kids, belongs in my collection!
