The Hudson Eye will be an annual 10-day public program and urban showcase, artist-driven, with a focus on Dance, Music, Performance, Film, Visual Art, Dining Out, and Nightlife during the final week of August, running through Labor Day weekend, as a celebratory close to Hudson’s peak tourism weekend of the summer.

“For nearly 200 years during and since the founding of the Hudson River School, our city and region have been a source of inspiration for artists to live, work, commune, meditate, create, find shelter, renew themselves – and seek a sustainable creative sanctuary. As we go further in depth during our planning phase of The Hudson Eye we remain mindful of this history, and steadfast in our support of the Hudson community: we have plans to expand our commitment to with many artists. Our program features a number of artists both within the Hudson region and abroad, to be curatorially framed in a multi-venue exhibition program, while also featuring a daily 1pm Panel Salon and “Dine Around” in town each evening”.
