HUDSON — We joyfully invite you to our upcoming opening of Photo + Synthesis, a visual art exhibition about the ecology, history, and landscape of the Hudson River Valley. The work we are showcasing includes 19th century paintings, new commissions of landscape photography, and a special data visualization piece about tree science.
On opening night only, we will project Tree Shadows, a video by Eve Morgenstern, outside Hudson Hall from 6-9 PM.
