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.
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.
Hudson River Museum Senior Attendant Guard Kenya Reece was recently interviewed at the Museum for Greyston Bakery’s PathMakers In Action series.
“Between celebrating its 100th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of its newer space that houses its art galleries and workshops, the museum had another milestone worth honoring in mind — the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that landed humans on the moon for the first time . . . . “A Century of Lunar Photography and Beyond,” [looks] at 61 different images of the moon taken from as early as the 1840s through today.”
For the second year in a row, the Hudson River Museum was selected as a top Readers’ Pick in Westchester Magazine’s Best of Westchester 2019. For the first time the Museum has been named Best Tourist Attraction while also garnering Best Place for a Date Night (Other Than a Restaurant) in the Fun & Leisure category for the second year in a row.
“. . . the story of the Hudson River Museum (HRM) in its Centennial year is one of a museum returning to its roots in the community, broadly writ, recognizing that what ends up on its walls can reflect its audience at the same time that it provides deep learning experiences. It’s all about community enrichment and conversation.”
