The New York Times’ arts section featured the “Currier & Ives:Printmakers to the American People” exhibit currently at the Suffolk County Historical Society.

The show opened to a large and enthusiastic crowd in Riverhead in July.

The popular exhibit is a collaboration between historical society director Kathy Curran and a private collector of Bayport who lent 250 Currier & Ives lithographs to grace the halls of three gallery spaces.

The collector, who asked he not be identified, told the News-Review in July the images provide for a “great story.”
