From outdoor art and music to a cool covered bridge, these are don’t-miss sights in the Upper Valley | Lifestyles

T hree students roll along Hanover’s Lebanon Street on inline skates before zipping into a courtyard by Dartmouth College’s Black Family Visual Arts Center.

It’s clearly a familiar route, the trio flying past three contemporary sculpture displays before disappearing beneath a quaint brick pass-through by the Hood Museum of Art’s entrance and heading toward East Wheelock Street.

Outdoor art is “like a background theme song to life here,” said John Stomberg, head of the campus art committee that manages Dartmouth’s public installations. “Even if you’re not focusing on it, it’s part of the experience.”

Stomberg describes the outdoor art as a way to frame nature and highlight the landscape.

It’s also a reminder that any visit to the Upper Valley should start here, where the white spires and red-hued brick buildings are an Ivy League postcard of centuries of academia and the downtown has a casual-chic energy.

Harry Styles “Watermelon Sugar” Music Video Is Everything We Want

  • Today, Harry Styles dropped the music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” one of his hit singles on his sophomore album, Fine Line.
  • The video, which has the singer eating copious amounts of fruit among a crowd of bikini-clad girls, is dedicated to “touching.”

    There’s only so much I can say about Harry Styles in his newly released music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” fresh off his sophomore album, Fine Line, before this piece starts veering off into NSFW discourse.

    The music video, which dropped today, bursts at the seams with sexual innuendo: the dedication (romantically addressed to the art of “touching”), the swarm of writhing bodies in sun-dipped bikinis, Styles’s teensy-tiny knit sweater vests. Nothing, however, gets the layman viewer going more than watching the singer’s baby-pink-painted fingernails caressing the edge of a watermelon slice.

    In other words, think Mamma Mia! but sexier—and with less Colin Firth.
