PRESS EVENT IN KINGSTON ON JUNE 2ND TO INAUGURATE EXPANSION OF WORLD-RENOWNED HUDSON RIVER SCHOOL ART TRAIL 

WHAT:      On Saturday June 2nd, the world-renowned Hudson River School Art Trail will expand from eight sites in New York to 17 sites in New York, two in New Hampshire, two in Wyoming, and one in Massachusetts. The Hudson River School Art Trail, launched in 2005, provides a series of hiking and driving trails that lead visitors to the places that inspired America’s first great landscape paintings, in the 19th century. The artists who created those paintings – including Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, Jasper Cropsey, Asher B. Durand, Sanford Gifford and many others – were part of the art movement now known as the Hudson River School and created sublime landscape images throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.
