The Hudson River Museum is the largest cultural institution in Westchester County and a multidisciplinary complex that draws its identity from its site on the banks of the Hudson River, seeking to broaden the cultural horizons of all its visitors. The Museum collections focus on 19th-century through contemporary American Art; Glenview, an 1876 house on the National Register of Historic Places; Hudson Riverama, an environmental teaching gallery; a state-of-the-art, 120-seat planetarium, and a 400-seat outdoor amphitheater. It presents exhibitions, programs, teaching initiatives, research, collection, preservation, and conservation – a wide range of activities that interpret its collections, interests and communities.

Shake off the winter blues and come to HRM for the exhibition Westchester Magazine named one of the 5 hottest things to do in January—Librado Romero: From the Desert to the River:

"Full of bright jewel tones depicting the shimmering waterways of Calexico, Romero’s breezy work provides a welcome respite from all the snow and sleet."

During mid- to late nineteenth century, illustrated travel books emerged as an important way to promote tourism to the wealthy and a growing middle class. The most magnificent and comprehensive of these was Picturesque America, which was edited by William Cullen Bryant, America's preeminent poet of nature.

Currently on view in our exhibition Landscape Art & Virtual Travel this two-volume set included steel-plate and wood engravings made by a number of artists who were sent across the country to record notable scenery in person. Harry Fenn was one of the main artists working on the project, traveling to the locations to illustrate twenty-five of the sixty-five chapters. Here, he depicts Cozzens’ Hotel, a popular tourist destination near West Point.

See more of these etchings in the exhibition. We’re open 12-5pm on Thursdays-Sundays. Advance tickets encouraged.

Turn your personal history into art at our Virtual Family Studio Art Workshop: Portrait and Nature, on Saturday, January 9, 23, or 30, 1:30pm. Led by Junior Docents at the Hudson River Museum, and using your photo as a guide, you’ll create a self-portrait in the colors of the landscape of your birthplace. Then you’ll collage your drawing onto a background—real or imagined—that looks like that special landscape.

The workshops are designed by Teaching Artist-in-Residence Artist Julia Santos Solomon, a Dominican-American artist who has been creating paintings, sculpture, prints, fashion design, and digital media for more than forty years. Her work speaks to the full range of one woman’s life experience coming out of the vibrant cultural heritage of the Caribbean and her belief that where you come from impacts how you see the world.

What are you learning today?

Zendaya from our Remote Learning Center at Hudson River Museum is learning how to use words with “CH” in a sentence.

Here’s one to share with your kids:
Chiaroscuro: The arrangement of light and dark elements in a drawing or painting.
“While drawing a picture of the child with a dark pencil, the illustrator wanted to create a chiaroscuro by creating shadows to highlight the child’s cheek.”

"The works remind viewers that journeys of the mind can be freeing. It features new loans from Art Bridges: Cynthia Daignault’s 'Light Atlas' and David Hockney’s '15 Canvas Study of the Grand Canyon.' These important loans offer rich potential for dialogue with 19th- to 21st-century paintings, prints, and sculpture from the Museum’s collection."

Start the new year off right by taking Chronogram's recommendation in Gallery Watch: 4 Exhibits to See in January and come see Librado Romero: From the Desert to the River.

"His childhood memories of his native California and his extensive travels as a photojournalist combine to make Romero deeply appreciative of living and painting along the Hudson, one terminus in his show 'From the Desert to the River.' Water still fascinates the artist, and his deep sense of connection to his natural surroundings underlies much of his current work."

#HRMHolidays #Glenview

The interior of the Glenview Manor in Yonkers is said to have one of the finest examples of Eastlake woodwork in a historic home, open to the public, in the entire U. S. The house was built in 1869.

In 1929, this Victorian estate became "The Hudson River Museum." In later years, the modern museum with a planetarium was built onto the house.

Ticketed tours to see the house dressed up in holiday style are running through Sunday, January 2nd.
