“From Shore to Shore” Exhibit

“From Shore to Shore: Boat Builders and Boatyards of Long Island and Westchester” has finished its run at the Port Jefferson Village Center. This interpretive exhibit examines the history and traditions of contemporary boat builders and boatyards, exploring their commitment to an endangered way of life in the wake of superstorms, decline in fishing and the expenses associated with traditional boat building and preserving boatyards.

The exhibit is available for rental to area museums, libraries, and cultural institutions. Inquiries about the exhibit should be sent to info@longislandtraditions.org or by calling (516) 767-8803. The full exhibit consists of 36 framed panels measuring 36" x 38", a historic timeline measuring 15 feet x 3 feet, and an iPad with installed videos. The exhibit can be subdivided according to region, type of boat builders, and types of boatyards.
