Once settlers from across the ocean began to inhabit the lands of the Lenape on the banks of the Delaware, Trenton has been home to immigrants: both to those who came here willingly, seeking jobs and opportunity for a better life, and to those who came here under duress.  The William Trent House, its inhabitants, its surroundings and its circumstances represent that history. It is the history of the town, of the state, indeed of the nation.

As we approach the 300th anniversary of the House and to help us shine a light on her whole story, the Trent House Association has invited local and regional visual artists to submit works that highlight the 300 + year history of the city of Trenton.  Works may depict Trentonians from any period in her history, famous, infamous or unknown. They may depict Trenton places significant or insignificant or they may depict events glorious or ignominious.
