As Downtown Trenton gets ready to commemorate Trenton’s pivotal role in the American Revolution by celebrating Patriots Week, the Trenton Downtown Association’s BSB Gallery is getting in on the action.

The BSB Gallery recently debuted a new exhibit Revolutionary Resolve. The exhibit combines artwork provided by various organizations throughout Trenton such as the Old Barracks Museum (where the Hessians stayed during the Battle of Trenton), the Trenton Free Public Library‘s Trentoniana, and Terracycle, alongside modern artworks submitted by local artists including Billy Dee, Kevin Hogan, Rob Keephart, Phillip McConnell, Jeff Stewart and Andrew Wilkinson.

The artworks on display all celebrate Trenton’s crucial role in turning the tides of the American Revolutionary War during the Battle of Trenton as General George Washington crossed the Delaware River on Christmas Day 1776 to launch a surprise attack on the British camped out where what is now the Old Barracks Museum.

Trentonians, history buffs, and art fans alike are all invited to come see pieces such these featured below.
