Thursday, November 28, 2013
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm



Billowing smoke, noble bridges, & epic waterfront are central to the New York shown in Industrial Sublime.

Billowing smoke, booming industry, noble bridges, and an epic waterfront are the landscape of New York changing and growing in the first 40 years of the 20th century. Industrial Sublime: Modernism and the Transformation of New York’s Rivers, 1900-1940 at the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, shows the convulsive changes in the New York metropolis and its rivers that are embraced in modern paintings from Robert Henri to Georgia O’Keeffe.

Industrial Sublime includes over 70 works from museums around the country.

The exhibition is co-curated by Kirsten M. Jensen, Curator, and Bartholomew F. Bland, Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Hudson River Museum
