Topography, 3D Art, and the N.H. 4000 Foot Club: A Lecture with Demonstration

Topography, 3D Art, and the N.H. 4000 Foot Club: A Lecture with Demonstration

Climbing all the 4000 footers in NH is a goal for many hikers in the Granite State. Learn how an interest in hiking, orienteering, map making, and teaching topography led retired middle school science teacher, Mark Thomas, to create a collection of painted 3D models of all the 48 mountains on one of New Hampshire's favorite hiking bucket lists. Plus, enjoy a demonstration of how these unique 3D models are made!

Presented as part of the Museum’s summer exhibition: Wayfinding: Maps of the White Mountains. The Summer 2020 Speaker Series was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
