Where Creativity Flows: Two Centuries of Art Inspired by Our Canals

National Canal Museum - Where Creativity Flows: Two Centuries of Art Inspired by Our Canals

The canals of Eastern PA and Western NJ not only changed the course of our nation’s history; they also provided a natural source of inspiration for our nation’s artists. Our 2020 exhibit, “Where Creativity Flows: Two Centuries of Art Inspired by Our Canals,” exhibits historic and contemporary artworks, novels and children’s books, folk art, and film that capture the history and timeless beauty of canal life.
