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.

In Praise of the Near and Dear

To all our supporters, collaborators, members, and community partners, we send heartfelt thanks and invite you to join us in looking forward with a spirit of optimism toward the brighter days that await in 2021.

Our Thanks to You

On behalf of our entire team, thank you for being a part of the Hudson River Museum. This has been a challenging year in every respect and we take this time to celebrate our wonderful community, and to express our appreciation for your participation and presence, in all its forms.

Foregrounds and Fortitude

Thank you again for being an integral part of the Museum. Your support allows us to keep our doors open, and we are committed, in return, to offer you respite, resilience, and inspiration.

A Day Worth Waiting For: HRM Reopens to the Public Tomorrow!

At long last, the Hudson River Museum is reopening to the public this Saturday, July 25. We are so excited to welcome you back.

Black Lives Matter

The Hudson River Museum unequivocally believes that Black Lives Matter. This time, it is George Floyd; before him, it was Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Atatiana Jefferson, Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, and many others. We say their names.
