The Museum’s Kimbel and Cabus furniture holdings include a secretary, an armchair, a hanging shelf, a table, a side chair original to Glenview, and a cabinet that is currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum in Modern Gothic: The Inventive Furniture of Kimbel and Cabus, 1863–82.
HRM to Commemorate 20th Anniversary of 9/11 with Illumination of Glenview Historic Home as Part of Tribute in Light
In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the Hudson River Museum will illuminate the tower of Glenview historic home—the Museum’s 1877 Gilded Age home on the National Register of Historic Places—as an extension of Tribute in Light.
Please note the Museum will be closed on Saturday, June 19, to recognize Juneteenth. We will reopen on Sunday, June 20, and hope you will join us for our Juneteenth and Father’s Day workshop, a day of artistic expression, celebration of family, and community building led by artist Kay Douglas.
On Friday, June 25, the Hudson River Museum will host Looking Up, Looking Forward: A Gala to Benefit the Hudson River Museum with a special outdoor evening event in our bucolic courtyard. Richard Haas is receiving this year’s Isidore Konti Medal, named in honor of one of the Museum’s illustrious founders.
