Among the many historic works are contemporary paintings, such as the piece commissioned specifically for the exhibition, Len Tantillo’s, "East River Waterfront," c. 1662. Trained as an architect and historian as well as an artist, Tantillo used historic documents and maps to bring to life lower east side of Manhattan as it would have looked during the dutch colonial period. Other noted artists in the exhibition include John Stobart, Jack Gray, Tim Thompson, Dusan Kadlec, and John George Brown.
