The Lure of the Striped Bass

Curated by Stephen T. Lobosco & Richard Doctorow


Opening Reception: Friday, August 8th, 6:00 to 8:00PM

A look at the Saltwater revolution that occurred after WWII when jobless soldiers became innovators and pioneers by making fishing lures. The results were Flaptails, Poppers, Darters, and Turn Tails that could hold their own swimming in big surf. This exhibit explores their creations and the influence they have had on our community.
