Hudson Valley's best art venues
The Hudson Valley in New York has been a celebrated art harbour for the last two hundred years - no wonder, considering that the area with its gentle woods, hilltops and green riverbanks is close to the New York City area. Hudson River School' art movements began in the early nineteenth and the art community has continued to gain momentum ever since, attracting art enthusiasts with blockbusters such as the Stone King Art Center and Dia:Beacon, blended with vibrant artist communities, a sturdy culture calendars and lesser-known but more dignified art sites such as Art Omi and Opus 40.
