Good morning Gentle Forum Members,

The members and Trustees of the Railroad Museum of Long Island are pleased to announce the opening of a railroad photography exhibit, “Many Hands: A Representation of Railroad Workers,“ located at our Greenport Museum at 440 – 4th Street, Greenport, NY. It will be open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and Monday Holidays from May 26th through October 8th 2007. Museum hours are 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM and admission is $5.00 adults, $3.00 for children 5 to 12 years old and free to children younger than 5.

The exhibit includes over fifty black and white and color photographs of the men and women, (the “Many Hands"), that have kept the railroads of New York moving over the past one hundred and fifty years, and numerous tools and artifacts of the equipment they used.

This art show was developed by Curators Michael Zega and John Gruber of the Center for Railroad Photography and Art of Madison, Wisconsin and designed by Robert DelBagno and Todd Ludlam of the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn, New York. The exhibit is funded in part by the North American Railway Foundation, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.
