Multiple art installations across the city explicate the intrinsic role land plays in bearing witness to historic hardship. Running August 27 through September 6, The Hudson Eye’s performances, exhibitions, installations, and Hot Topics humanities symposium take place at over two dozen venues.A self-guided tour designed by Anna Savino allows festivalgoers to explore Hudson on foot, via walkable public art installations and festival venues. Participating artists include Emily Ritz, Padma Rajendran, Claudia Bruce, Kris Perry, Concrete Temple Theater, and Pauline DeCarmo.
