Labor Arts is grateful for the cooperation of Tom Simone and the Croton Historical Society, and for another outstanding design from Paul Yamagata-Madlon and Goss Creative.

This virtual online exhibit is an abbreviated version of an actual, extensive multi-media exhibition prepared for the Croton Historical Society by Tom Simone. Dennis Lund did the graphic design for that exhibit; Cornelia Cotton, Laurie Sandow, The Tamiment Library at New York University, and Michigan State University all contributed items for display; Cornelia Cotton, Laurie Sandow and the members of the Historical Society assisted Tom Simone and Dennis Lund in the preparation.

The exhibition will be on display throughout 2012 at the Croton History Museum, Municipal Building, 1 Van Wyck Street, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520 (9am–5pm Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday).
