Director's Letters

Renew, Re-engage, Remember

We often equate spring with renewal, and with all that is happening at HRM, the association is fitting. Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky brings our attention to some important dates and exciting upcoming events.

A Month for Women, a World of Frida, a Museum for All

Dear Friends of the HRM, It’s always special for me to write about and experience the work of women artists, and ever more so during the month of March. A case in point: few artists captivate the world by first name alone. Frida is one of them. This season, and as part of Women’s History

Reasons for Joy and Reflection

As we round the corner of another year, and especially a year like 2021, it is worthwhile to take the opportunity to appreciate the people, places, and experiences that lift us up and fill us with positive anticipation.

The Power of Gratitude

Thank you for supporting us through memberships, gifts, and partnerships, and joining us to work with our community, including us in your conversations, and sometimes just checking in.

HRM Featured in The New York Times

Our entire team at HRM has been hard at work preparing for the season. It’s especially gratifying when that work is recognized by The New York Times!

Seeing What’s Always Been There

It is with this recognition that Black art and artists are overdue their rightful place in the arc of American art that the Hudson River Museum is proud to present African American Art in the 20th Century.

Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts

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.

Standing in Solidarity with our Asian-American Community

We emphatically stand against and condemn anti-Asian racism and the hate incidents occurring across the United States.

Commemorating the One-Year Anniversary of the Pandemic with “Outside My Window” Virtual Student Exhibition

As the pandemic continues to affect our everyday lives, the distribution of vaccines gives us hope that soon we will be outside our windows, together. We dedicate this virtual exhibition to all those we lost in the past year. May their memory continue to inspire the next generation.

Bridging Walls and Breaking Boundaries

This month, we unveil Border Cantos | Sonic Border, a profoundly moving exhibition that crosses boundaries in many ways. Using the language of art, photographer Richard Misrach and sculptor and composer Guillermo Galindo bring a humanitarian perspective to the political debates that surround the subject of immigration today.
