Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art presents

PEEKSKILL PROJECT 6

27 September – 31 December 2015

Peekskill Project is a citywide public art festival organized by HVCCA (Hudson Valley Center of Contemporary Art). The project is devoted to bringing contemporary art out of the museum and into the community; specifically into spaces not normally used to present art. Using the city as a stage, Peekskill Project engages the urban environment and its inhabitants with site-specific art installations, performances and workshops throughout the city. Peekskill Project 6 will open to the public on September 27, 2015 and continue through end of December 2015. The festival is open to the public and free of charge.
    Peekskill Project 6 will feature an exciting variety of sculpture, photography, installation, video and performance art by approximately 60 international and local artists, exhibited in industrial buildings, storefronts, and parks around the city. The artists are using the rich history of Peekskill, the surrounding area, as well as their own varied personal narratives, as a generative tool to create their site-specific works. Many of the projects presented will also directly involve and engage the community in the creative process. A comprehensive public program, including talks, workshops, film-screenings and performance workshops, is presented in connection with the festival.

HISTORY OF PEEKSKILL PROJECT

Peekskill Project, first launched in 2004, has become a highly anticipated event attracting thousands of visitors each year as it offers children and adults alike the opportunity to explore the city’s rich social, cultural and geographic history through the lens of contemporary art. With active support from businesses, restaurants, city employees, and artists the festival has grown in scope, quality, and visibility. The festival continues to generate interest and investment in the City of Peekskill and serves to solidify Peekskill’s role as a premiere art destination. Previous Peekskill Projects have featured work by over 100 established and emerging artists and have been visited by more than 30,000 people. Generous support and involvement of city government and the community have been critical to the success of these events.

Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art presents

PEEKSKILL PROJECT 6

27 September – 31 December 2015

Peekskill Project is a citywide public art festival organized by HVCCA (Hudson Valley Center of Contemporary Art). The project is devoted to bringing contemporary art out of the museum and into the community; specifically into spaces not normally used to present art. Using the city as a stage, Peekskill Project engages the urban environment and its inhabitants with site-specific art installations, performances and workshops throughout the city. Peekskill Project 6 will open to the public on September 27, 2015 and continue through end of December 2015. The festival is open to the public and free of charge.
    Peekskill Project 6 will feature an exciting variety of sculpture, photography, installation, video and performance art by approximately 60 international and local artists, exhibited in industrial buildings, storefronts, and parks around the city. The artists are using the rich history of Peekskill, the surrounding area, as well as their own varied personal narratives, as a generative tool to create their site-specific works. Many of the projects presented will also directly involve and engage the community in the creative process. A comprehensive public program, including talks, workshops, film-screenings and performance workshops, is presented in connection with the festival.
