Event description: WORDS THAT PAINT: THE HUDSON VALLEY SCHOOL IN POETRY AND PROSE HVCCA's exhibition "PEEKSKILL PROJECT V: The New Hudson River School," provides the setting for this unique night of short plays and poems inspired by art from the exhibition. "Words that Paint: The Hudson River School in Poetry and Prose" is a collaborative art experience presented by HVCCA and Director Mara Mills. Writers from throughout the region were invited to visit the exhibition, and then submit short plays or poems inspired by works of art. The resulting works were juried and assembled into this theatrical performance.

HVCCA provides the backdrop, performed by professional actors in full view of the artwork that inspired the words. The audience will move through the space as the narrative unfolds, adding a dynamic component.

"Words that Paint…" will debut in the evening on Thursday, February 14th at 7pm. There will be three additional performances: matinees on Saturday, February 16th at 2pm and 4pm; Sunday, February 17th at 2pm. The event will last approximately one-and-a-half hours. Audience is limited to 25 per performance. Reserve with credit card or check by calling 914-788-0100 or emailing kellis@hvcca.org.
