Maritime Folklore Exhibition: “From Shore to Shore: Boat Builders and Boat Yards of Westchester and Long Island”
Every day until Mar 9, 2013 at 12:00pm
31 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601
The building and repair of boats and ships of all sizes has long been a vital part of occupational culture during the history of the Hudson River area. While the construction of boats has changed dramatically over the years, the art of traditional boat building is being revived at key educational sites in New York. Reflecting 200 years of maritime tradition, this exciting exhibition will profile master craftsmen, their tools and the landmark boat yards where they work, historical timeline displays, models and actual boats that they have built.

This project is made possible with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Humanities and the New York State Council on the Arts. Presented by ArtsWestchester, in collaboration with Long Island Traditions.
Gallery Hours: Tue-Sat 12-5 / Opening Reception: Thursday, January 17, 6-8:30pm
