BeaconArts and their sponsors joined Dutchess County Tourism in their booth at The New York Times Travel Show at the Javitts Center on Jan. 18, 19 and 20. They handed out over 800 Beacon maps and 800 Art Along the Hudson brochures. Teamed with other venues from Dutchess County, they helped spread the word about Beacon and other Dutchess County communities that have art, history, culinary treats and scenery.

BeaconArts extends thanks to their joining sponsors — Art Along the Hudson, Mountain Tops, Hudson Beach Glass and RiverWinds Gallery. Special thanks go to Kirsten Heincke for creating the banner, Robert Rodriguez Jr. for his image and Grey Printing for printing the banner.

The Beacon community is one of the 10 communities of ArtAlongTheHudson.com. Representatives spoke to participants about Dia:Beacon, Dutchess County art happenings, specialty shops, food and drink venues, historical sites and the mountains and river.

  1. I hope Cold Spring and Putnam County will be similarly represented at the travel show 2014.

  2. Funny, I was kind of thinking the same thing: no mention of our Tourism director or Chamber of Commerce chief either. One would think that this high profile Travel Show would be of great interest to Mrs. Pataki and the others who are supposedly out there drumming up tourists for Cold Spring. Then again, they think the problem is that there aren’t enough hotels, bed & breakfasts or other accommodations for all the tourists that are allegedly lined up looking for a place to stay.
