Bank of New Hampshire Helps Bring Field Trips to the Currier Museum of Art

Manchester, New Hampshire – October 14, 2016 – Remember the days of regular school field trips? Due to tighter school budgets, administrations have had to cut many student field trips because of the cost of providing transportation and chaperones. Thanks to community supporters such as Bank of New Hampshire, schools can be relieved of a portion of this burden and kids can again enjoy the experience of attending the Currier Museum of Art.

“Bank of New Hampshire’s sponsorship of our transportation program allows us to provide scholarships to schools to reduce the cost of bringing their students here,” said Paul Staller, Currier Museum of Art Director of Development. “Art is critically important to developing well-rounded students and the Currier Museum of Art offers programs for all ages that organically tie into school curricula.”

The Currier Museum of Art is committed to providing stimulating, diverse and enjoyable encounters with original works of art and, in doing so, hopes to inspire the hearts, minds and imagination of its members and visitors. It provides the public with opportunities to learn about the past, appreciate and evaluate the present, and contemplate the future.

“Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support programs and organizations such as this,” stated Karen Wilson, Vice President, Community Reinvestment Act Officer for Bank of New Hampshire. “We appreciate and value the education that is provided by the Currier Museum of Art and are proud to partner with them to bring students from all over New Hampshire to enjoy this experience.”
