BIG ART in the Hudson Valley

A History Presentation and Panel Discussion

Sunday | May 17th 2:00 PM

Throughout history and into the present, the beauty of the rolling mountains of the Hudson River Valley have both inspired artists and cradled creativity. The very mentioning of this important waterway and art brings to mind a historic movement of landscape artists that painted romanticized views of the valley. The Hudson River School of Art is certainly not the beginning or end of expression along the Hudson River. Tom Knieser, member of the Newburgh Historical Society, has brought together a panel of artists and historians to discuss the role of commercial art and oversized sculpture in the Hudson Valley – the industry of “Big Art.”
