You are cordially invited to the opening reception for Art of the Erie Canal! From 1:00-2:00 p.m., enjoy light refreshments the South Hall Lobby.

Then, join curators Karen Quinn and Ashley Hopkins-Benton at 2:00 p.m. for a guided gallery tour as they discuss the paintings, drawings, ceramics, photography, and more, all depicting the Erie Canal. Learn about what attracted artists to the canal, who bought their art, and the ways they depicted (sometimes more accurately than others) the history and geography of the canal.
