Hudson Rising

30 seconds

Watch a preview of the exhibition. Explore 200 years of ecological change and environmental activism along “the most interesting river in America” through artifacts, media, and celebrated Hudson River School paintings. The exhibition reflects on how human activity has impacted the river and, in turn, how the river environment has shaped industrial development, commerce, tourism, and environmental awareness. The exhibition also reveals how experts in various fields are currently creating ways to restore and re-engineer areas of the river in response to climate change. Learn More >
