Join Historic Huguenot Street for an evening of dinner and drinks at the annual Fall Harvest Celebration, one of the Hudson Valley’s premier events of the season. The museum celebrates another successful year on Huguenot Street and honors the artistic achievements of Len Tantillo.
About the Honoree:
Born in the Hudson Valley, Len Tantillo began the fine art of historical painting in 1986. Since that time, his work has appeared internationally in exhibitions, publications, and film documentaries. His work is included in the collections of the Fenimore Art Museum, the Minnesota Museum of Marine Art, and numerous historical societies. In 2004 he was commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to create a painting depicting the Daniel Winne house as it may have appeared in 1755.
Tantillo's work, based on hours of historical research, provides a way to experience and reconstruct the untold stories of the past. They cover a variety of scenes and centuries, including maritime scenes, colonial New York and Native Americans, and the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
His scholarly and artistic work has greatly enhanced the region's visual understanding of its past.
