“Landscape is the best art” ~ Andy Warhol

The legacy of anxiety and joy around landscape and environmental degradation stems from ideas and thinking in 19th century Hudson River School painting; LightField’s 2019 commissioned and featured artists continue to work with landscapes of the Hudson River Valley as an evolution of those ideas today.

Please join us for one or both of our opening events, and enrich the conversations.
