McKenney-Hall lithographs on display in Old Forge

Posted

OLD FORGE — The Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd., will partner with the Town of Webb Historical Association (TOWHA) for their next exhibition — a collection of McKenney-Hall lithographs of American Indians.

A selection from one of the association’s most prized artifacts, the lithographs will leave the Goodsell Museum to be on the walls of the library’s Judith A. Cohen Memorial Wing, with an opening reception Thursday, Nov. 7, from 5-7 p.m.

The reception will include light refreshments and acoustic music by Dan Vellone, according to a library announcement. The exhibit will run through the end of December.

The Indian prints include portraits of several Native Americans, from warriors and statesmen to tribesmen and chiefs. Among them are such figures as Black Hawk, Joseph Brant, Pocahontas, Kalawabida and Tshusick.

TOWHA’s collection of prints came from the private collection of Allen and Margaret Wilcox and Marietta Shultz-Kelly, and was donated to the association in 1978. The prints hung in the Mohawk Hotel in the bar room that was called the Indian Room, and in various cottages staggered throughout the property, the announcement noted.
