Tugging Around Oswego Harbor - William Leighton Exhibit

The H. Lee White Maritime Museum is pleased to announce the opening of the new exhibit Tugging Around Oswego Harbor: The 20th Century Works of William Leighton.  Through photographs, watercolors, and scale models, Leighton’s impressions of tugboats provide a vivid portrait of Oswego Harbor in the 20th century and echo the essential nature of tugboats to harbor operations.  As a professional photographer and twenty-eight-year veteran of the Palladium Times, Leighton’s (1925-2017) love for the workhorse of the water is on full display May 18 through December 22, 2024.

Additionally, the expanded Shipwrecks of Upstate NY exhibit at the Maritime Museum now features thirty-five 3D printed and hand painted scale models of shipwrecks located beneath the waters of Lake Ontario and Central New York.  Developed by local divers and underwater explorers Tim Caza and Dennis Gerber, the Shipwrecks of Upstate NY exhibit provides an exact scale visual representation of wrecks untouched by no one else except nature.   Tim Caza is a licensed USCG Captain and an active scuba diver with over 127 discoveries to date.  Dennis Gerber is a retired electronics’ engineer and has 37 years of experience diving the waters of the greater Central New York region.  For more information on their work, visit their website at

Both exhibits will be unveiled as part of the Maritime Museum’s Lake Ontario Waterfront Festival, held Saturday, May 18th from 10 to 5pm.
