  • The Lenape
  • The Dutch
  • Treason of the Revolution
  • Slavery
  • The Nyack Turnpike. 

New for 2018 (September 5-October 28):

WOMEN OF THE RAMAPOUGH LENAPE NATION
This exhibition, representing the culmination of eighteen months of creative collaboration between Lisa Levart and Ramapough Lenape women of Rockland and Bergen counties, uses collaged portrait photography as a basis for contemporary reinterpretations of Lenape mythology. The artist uses a technique of layering images with other materials to achieve results that blend "contemporary and ancient portraiture across the expanse of time." A selection of her photographs--some being exhibited for the first time--will be displayed alongside prehistoric and historical
Lenape objects.

ROCKLAND COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION 125TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION
On December 28, 1893, a small group of Rockland County lawyers met at the St. George Hotel in Nyack with the purpose of creating a Bar Association. Guided by a long series of talented and committed officers, board members and members, the Association has been providing services to attorneys and the public for 125 years. This special exhibition commemorates the history and contributions of the profession of law and the Rockland County Bar Association in Rockland County.

Rockland Voices has been made possible by a grant from the Sterling  Bank Charitable Foundation.
