A Project by Artist-in-Residence Katharina Rooney


Developed by Katharina Rooney in collaboration with hundreds of members of the campus and regional community during fall 2016, ColorCycle, comprising thousands of recycled compact disk cases and a wide array of repurposed materials, is now installed across the upper windows in the Thorne lobby.

Education Programs

The Thorne’s museum education program is currently scheduling tours for school and other groups. These tours include

  • a hands-on activity exploring materials, creativity, and cooperation
  • a close, guided examination of works selected from the Thorne permanent collection
  • Q&A-based active viewing of a current exhibition.

Beginning the summer of 2017, the Thorne will offer age-specific camps and other programs that follow this same basic model. Educators and group leaders are welcome to preview exhibitions and programs and encouraged to contact the gallery with questions.

Programs and events supported by New England Foundation for the Arts, Robert P. Hubbard Family Trust, Redfern Arts Center, Horatio Colony Museum & Nature Center, and Keene State College.
