“Ribbon of Life: Delaware & Raritan Canal at 175”

This year, the Delaware & Raritan Canal will celebrate its 175th anniversary. To celebrate, the D&R Greenway Land Trust, in partnership with the D&R Canal Commission and the Delaware River Mill Society, has curated an exhibition entitled “Ribbon of Life: Delaware & Raritan Canal at 175.” The exhibit includes historic images selected from the archives of the D&R Canal Commission and contemporary artwork depicting canal images. The historical exhibition includes sections depicting hand-colored photographic views of the towns and places of interest along the canal between 1871 and 1924, as well as a photographic collection of canal boats. Interspersed through the exhibition is contemporary canal artwork composed by regional artists who have been inspired by the canal’s beauty.

The exhibit is on display at the Johnson Education Center, located at 1 Preservation Place (off Rosedale Road near Princeton), from May 18, 2009 to August 14, 2009. Beginning August 30, the exhibit will be on display at the Prallsville Mills in Stockton, NJ through September 30. Please contact the Delaware Mill Society at 609/397.3586 for hours and further information.
