"On Golden Pond" Exhibit to open on June 13, 2006
(Concord, NH) - The New Hampshire Film and Television Office will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the motion picture “On Golden Pond” in New Hampshire with an exhibit commemorating the state’s long-standing connection with the film.
The exhibit, originally scheduled to open May 18, will now open on June 13, 2006 and will run until June 29 in the Map Gallery of the State Library in Concord. The exhibit will then tour various venues around the Lakes Region throughout the summer and will tell the story of the creation and release of the film, the effect the film has had on our Lakes Region as well as the state of filmmaking in New Hampshire, twenty-five years later.
The exhibit is designed by BaileyDonovan LLC of Manchester and will consist of several printed panels featuring photographs, quotes, news clippings and documents surrounding the production and release of “On Golden Pond”. In addition to the printed panels, the Concord run of the exhibit will showcase various artifacts, props and mementos from the film. A web companion to the exhibit, featuring a complete archive of photos, clippings and documents not included in the traveling piece, will be launched at the same time as the exhibit, and will be located on the web site for the New Hampshire Film and Television Office at www.nh.gov/film. The web site will also provide a touring schedule for the exhibit.
The “On Golden Pond” 25th Anniversary Exhibit is made possible with the generous support of: First Colebrook Bank, TD Banknorth, Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center, Meadowbrook Performing Arts Charitable Foundation, The Common Man Restaurants, The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls and the New Hampshire Lottery.
