A Weekend in the Heart of the Valley

For over a century the Hudson River Valley has inspired artists with its breadth and beauty. You are invited to join us in the mountains and forests celebrated in the sublime 19th-century paintings of the Hudson River School, home to world-class contemporary art museums and sculpture parks.
