FREE ARTS DAY
A full day of free art activities for all!
December 8, 2013, 1 – 6 pm
Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art
1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY
The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art is proud to host a full day of fee arts activities for all.
From 1 – 2 pm our museum docent will lead a tour of the new 2013 – 2014 exhibition, Art at The Core: The Intersection of Visual Art, Performance, and Technology. The 35 works of art in this dynamic show explore the contemporary conflation of the varied art disciplines. Works will rotate over the year with playwrights, musicians, singers, and poets bringing the works alive in public performances.
From 2 – 4 pm HVCCA presents Walking Through the Picture Frame for all age groups. Join museum educators for a fun filled time of improvisational performance! Each educator will select one work from the exhibition, Art at The Core, with which the audience will interact. Exploring through narrative and movement, masks and theater, participants will be asked to react to the work in terms of their personal memories and experiences. Poetry, prose and movement, in an improvised format, will be shared as a theatrical performance emerges in which the individual understanding appears within a communal context.
Between 4 – 6 pm please join us in welcoming Jordan Rathus in a live, multimedia musical performance, featuring long time collaborators Nick Paparone, and Bill Santen. And spotlighting the world debut of the band “Tiny Rothko” (Rathus with Andrew Adolphus).
Rathus’ “mini-retrospective” installation will include multiple moving image works, whose theme will center on the creation of on-camera personas and unique interpretations of specific film and television tropes.
