As stewards of the Oswego West Pierhead Lighthouse, the H. Lee White Maritime Museum at Oswego is responsible for spearheading the physical restoration, historic interpretation, and public access tours of the iconic symbol of our City.
The Maritime Museum seeks to engage artists with a juried photography exhibit and a virtual exhibit featuring the amazing works of the New York State photography community. Photographers travel from around the State to Oswego to photograph the West Pierhead Lighthouse in all four seasons – we want to feature their work. The lighthouse-centered juried exhibits will display selected works from both youth and adult entries. Through these exhibits, the museum seeks to promote the photographers, and use their works to build a sense of community pride in our local historical resources.
The juried exhibit will be unveiled May 15, 2021 at the Maritime Museum’s annual Waterfront Open House weekend and can be viewed through Labor Day. All photographs must be submitted by April 30, 2021. The complete call for artists and rules for entry are available at hlwmm.org or call 315-342-0480 for more information. The Maritime Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open by appointment through March 31, 2021.
