Fifteen artworks spanning from the Dutch colony days to the present depict New York waters in an exhibition at Minnesota Marine Art Museum, located two hours south of the Twin Cities in Winona, Minn.

This is New York features art work from the last 150 years depicting aspects of this iconic American city. Included are a wide variety of locations that New York offers: Central Park, South Street, Battery Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and more.  Artists include Joseph Stella, Charles Sheeler, John Stobart, Jack Gray, Tim Thompson, Dusan Kadlec, Roy Cross, John George Brown, and a new historical painting by contemporary master Len Tantillo.

The marine art-focused museum has some new acquistions that inspired the show, according to the Star-Tribune: "Two works sparked this New York-centric show: Joseph Stella's 1922 painting "Study of the Brooklyn Bridge," a close-up of the mighty steel structure that the museum acquired earlier this year, and Charles Sheeler's 1932 "View of Central Park," a bird's-eye view of Manhattan drawn in Conté crayon, on long-term loan from a private collector."
