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.
In May 2020, we invited teachers and students to submit images or writing that reflected our new reality during the pandemic. We were moved and humbled by the response from near and far.
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.
Despite recent challenges, the HRM Docents have gone above and beyond, pivoting enthusiastically to the virtual realm and finding ways to bolster the camaraderie and community that make them such an integral part of the Hudson River Museum.
This year, the HRM is proud to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Junior Docent Program, an award-winning teen leadership program, and to applaud the exceptional Yonkers high school students who are an integral part of the Museum.
This year’s whimsical installation, which will be on view from November 27, 2020 through January 3, 2021, showcases beautiful Christmas trees, antique ornaments and toys, artwork featuring children through the ages, and a tablescape that incorporates children’s ornaments and a gingerbread house.
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.
As we approach the final weeks of artist Derrick Adams’ exhibition, We Came to Party and Plan, we’re looking back at Adams’ joyful work at the HRM. Be sure to come see this unforgettable installation before it closes on October 18.
