WORD has been extended until Dec. 17th
HVCCA often features artists from the international community, some with established careers as well as those just emerging. WORD’ is HVCCA’s first open juried exhibition purposed to highlight regional artists featuring ‘a word’ or ‘words’ in their artistic productions. These newer and lesser known works sit side by side with works of well known artists including Beatrice Coron, Ann Hamilton John Mellencamp, Jeffrey Gibson, and Robert Indiana. Words have power to hurt and to heal, to be offered as prayer or diatribe. Some of these ‘word’ facets will be explored in the works presented at the HVCCA. Education programs, word performances and readings will enhance the visual exhibition at the HVCCA.
Also at HVCCA thru July 31 is the Student Exhibition, which includes works created by Peekskill High School students who have been working with our In-School Artists Residents as well as works by students from our Young Docents Program. Also, hear the voice of Hudson Valley youth who participated in The “I’m Tired” Project from Yonkers, Newburgh, Beacon, Peekskill and Mount Vernon.
