Canal Museum features art exhibit

Submitted by Richard Palmer

SYRACUSE - An art exhibit depicting the lives of those
who work and play on the fabled bodies of water that border New York
City's five boroughs, will be displayed April 8 to 30 at the Erie
Canal Museum in Syracuse.

Among those who visitors will meet are a dry dock operator, an eel
fisherman, a fireboat preservationist, and a guerilla swimmer.

Gathered from the East River to the Erie Basin, the Hudson to
Hempstead Harbor, each new perspective connects a personal passion to
a fabled local maritime history.

The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; and
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. For further information go or call 315-471-0593.

The museum is located at 318 Erie Blvd. East.
