Presidential Pencil Portraits


This February, local artist David Smilon will be exhibiting pencil drawings of 44 Presidents. Mr. Smilon is a retired History Professor from Bergen Community College who took up drawing as a hobby. He combined his new talent for art with his extensive knowledge of history to create the portraits hanging in our Meeting Room. Each portrait has a quote from that President under the drawing.
