There will be several special additions to the Spring show this year including a booth by the Police Athletic League, celebrating its 100th anniversary highlighting the organization's history and services. 2014 is recognized as the "Year of the Coast Guard," and in partnership with the Coast Guard Art Program (COGAP), a special exhibit of COGAP art, jointly sponsored by the United States Coast Guard and the Salmagundi Club, will be on display in Schwartz Plaza. Participating COGAP artists produce impressive paintings of Coast Guard ships, operations and installations to be featured in embassies, consulates and other government entities. Also 5/31 & 6/1.
