Hudson Rising

Sunday, Aug 4, 2019

Hudson Rising explores 200 years of ecological change + environmental activism along “the most interesting river in America” through artifacts, media, and celebrated Hudson River School paintings. The exhibition reflects on how human activity has impacted the river and, in turn, how the river environment has shaped industrial development, commerce, tourism + environmental awareness. The exhibition also explores how experts in various fields are currently creating ways to restore and re-engineer areas of the river in response to climate change.

Much more than a body of water, the Hudson + its surroundings have been the home for humans + hundreds of species of fish, birds + plants; offered an escape for city-dwellers; + witnessed battles over the uses of the river valley + its resources. For over 200 years, writers and artists have captured the river in paintings, drawings, literature, + photographs + surveyors + scientists have mapped and measured its every parcel.

Location: New York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West
