June 15 saw the highly anticipated launch of a public digital database of art collections by the Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz, the Center for Photography at Woodstock, Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, and Women's Studio Workshop. Images and information regarding more than 7,000 objects now make their home in this database that Ariel Shanberg, executive director at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, calls “an exciting next step in the way arts organizations in our unique region of the world are working together.”

The institutions involved have dedicated themselves to sustaining and growing the artistic traditions of the Hudson Valley—Women's Studio Workshop has expanded into the country's largest publisher of artist hand-printed books and the Dorsky Museum devotes much of its time to the augmentation of student work.

Funding for the database was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through a grant supported by New Paltz alumnus and former US Congressman Maurice Hinchey, who believes this collaborative effort to be a foremost step in protecting and promoting Hudson Valley art. Additional support for the project was provided by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
