Once settlers from across the ocean began to inhabit the lands of the Lenape on the banks of the Delaware, Trenton has been home to immigrants: both to those who came here willingly, seeking jobs and opportunity for a better life, and to those who came here under duress. The William Trent House, its inhabitants, its surroundings and its circumstances represent that history. It is the history of the town, of the state, indeed of the nation.
As part of the 300th anniversary of the House and to help shine a light on her whole story, the Trent House Association has invited four sculptors to display works that evoke the immigrant experience during the 300 + year history of the William Trent House and surrounding area.
Works by Peter Abrams, Peter Drago, Kathryn Graves and David Robinson are on display.
The exhibit will be on display June 22 – November 3, 2019 with an Opening Reception on June 22, 2019 from 6 – 8 p.m.
The William Trent House is located at 15 Market Street. The museum is open Wednesdays – Sundays 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
