Basilica Hudson’s Biennial Pioneering People Honors Courtney Love


Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser celebrates groundbreaking artists, and this year’s event will celebrate the achievements and legacy of musician, songwriter, actor, and performer – Courtney Love.

Creative directed and produced by Basilica Hudson’s Co-Founder and Director Melissa Auf der Maur (former bassist of Courtney Love’s GRAMMY-nominated, certified multi-platinum, award-winning band Hole) and artist Joe Mama-Nitzberg, who was Creative Director of Hole’s Celebrity Skin and is a longtime creative collaborator and comrade of both Love and Auf der Maur, the event will be hosted by a group of creative luminaries and friends, including Aaron Dessner, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Natasha Lyonne, Ryan McGinley, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Elvis Perkins, Chloë Sevigny, Michael Stipe, Justin Vivian Bond, Kenny Mellman, Brandon Stosuy, Yelena Yemchuk, Jack Walls, and other special guests.

Courtney Love will be in attendance as the honored guest. Love and special guests will be featured in conversations, readings, and performances. The evening’s program will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades. An exciting lineup of contributors will illuminate the impact of Love’s vital and inspiring art and energy and the inspiration her work continues to instil in the next generation of artists and musicians.

Hudson Area Library Announces Galvan Armory Sculpture Dedication

stillirise

The Hudson Area Library announces the dedication of the public sculpture, “Still I
Rise” by Kris Perry, on Friday, October 19. This public art sculpture has been
recently installed on the grounds of the Galvan Armory; home to the library, the City of Hudson Senior Center and Perfect Ten After School.

The sculptor Kris Perry, known for his large-scale metal sculptures, was inspired by the well-known poem “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou to create this bronze piece, which was purchased by the Galvan Foundation and stands out prominently in front of the former armory building.

The dedication will feature a reading of “Still I Rise” by a student from Perfect Ten, a Question & Answer with Kris Perry by Hudson City School District students facilitated by Bridget Smith, Literacy Specialist of MC Smith Elementary School, and Dan Kent, Vice President of Initiatives for the Galvan Foundation, as well as representatives from the library, the senior center and Perfect Ten will be on hand to speak. The Hudson Area Library Tween Council will be hosting the event, which will end with refreshments in the community room.

Kris Perry, born in Berkeley, Ca., studied under illustrator Charles Pyle, and attended California College of Art. A skilled craftsperson and metal fabricator, he has worked with David Best on large scale projects. His own creation, the much-heralded “Machines,” combines industrial sound sculptures with live performance, and has been exhibited in a number of galleries and venues. These collaborations have included Tommy Stinson, Elvis Perkins, Brian Dewan, and others. Large-scale kinetic sculptures have been commissioned and exhibited across the country. His workshop is in Hudson, NY.

DATE/TIME:
Friday, October 19, 2018: 3:30 – 4:30pm

Columbia County Historical Society Lecture: “The Bicentennial History of the Town of Austerlitz,”, Oct 16

As Austerlitz celebrates its bicentennial this year, the Columbia County Historical Society (CCHS) Volunteers present “The Bicentennial History of the Town of Austerlitz,” a free illustrated lecture by Town of Austerlitz historian, Thomas H. Moreland, on October 16.

Established in 1818, Austerlitz has a rich history. Moreland will discuss The Indian Deed of 1756, the first settlers and settlements, the Spencertown Proprietorship (1757-72), and title disputes.

Thomas H. Moreland has been the Town Historian for Austerlitz since 2016, after serving several years as chair of the Research Committee of the Austerlitz Historical Society. In June 2018, the Old Austerlitz Historical Society published Moreland’s book — ‘The Old Houses of Austerlitz.’ Based on six years of original research, the book contains the first full history of the Town of Austerlitz, an area first settled in 1757 as the proprietorship of Spencers Town, and a monograph, by Michael Rebic, on the local architectural styles in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Most of the book is devoted to individual histories of each of the 168 extant buildings in the Town of Austerlitz that appear on the 1888 atlas map of the town. These buildings –157 of them houses– date from as early as the 1760s.

Additionally, there are some 20 short articles on aspects of Austerlitz history, such as the turnpikes and old roads, schools, and huckleberry picking, as well as on famous and infamous Austerlitz residents, ranging from Edna St. Vincent Millay to Oscar Beckwith – AKA the “Austerlitz Cannibal.”

DATE/TIME:
Tuesday, October 16th, 2018: 7 – 8pm

LOCATION:
Van Buren Hall
6 Chatham Street,
Kinderhook NY 12106
