The Waintrob Collection, currently on view at Snug Harbor Cultural Center is an eclectic assemblage of artworks from a variety of twentieth century American and European artists. Brothers Sidney and Abraham Waintrob had longstanding social roots in the New York artworld, as a spare time hobby, they began photographing their artist friends, who began exchanging pieces of their art for the photographic portraits.

This exhibition chronicles these bartered artworks to include drawings, paintings, prints and sculptures of artists such as Alberto Giacommetti, Henry Moore, Marcel Duchamp and Walker Evans. The exhibition also includes relevant artists' correspondence.
