HVCCA Awarded Funds for Peekskill Project VI

Citywide art installations and programs begin in September

The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art has been awarded a New York State Council on the Arts grant to help fund Peekskill Project VI.

Peekskill Project, launched in 2004, has grown in scope, quality and visibility, with active support from businesses, restaurants, city employees and artists. In each of the five iterations of Peekskill Project, over 100 international artists have participated and created original artworks. Attendance is robust with over 5,000 visitors at the opening weekend and, over the duration of the show, more than 30,000 visitors from the national and international community.

Peekskill Project VI opens in September and runs through the end of 2015.  The festival will feature more than 80 artists, both established and emerging, from countries all over the globe. Their original sculptures, paintings, videos and performances will be highlighted throughout Peekskill outdoors in public spaces, and indoors at downtown businesses.

Over the course of the project, many lively events will be held, including family education programs, performances and lectures, all related to the material in the exhibits.
