The Hudson Eye is an artist-driven 10-day annual public program and urban showcase, with a focus on dance, music, performance, film and visual art. This annual program, presented by the Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation and arranged by locally-born curator Aaron Levi Garvey, aims to celebrate the arts community in Hudson and help stimulate creativity and connectivity. The Hudson Eye partners with local venues and also features daily “Hot Topics” talks that are free and open to the public, hosted by guest speakers whose professional affiliations represent the diversity of Hudson.
Following 16 years of careful activity in Hudson fostering existing and new citizens alike, in all our local, state, national, international, and economic diversity: Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation successfully launched The Hudson Eye in partnership with 34 Artists, 27 Venues, 6,000+ Diverse Attendees, Collectors, Communities, Volunteers, Small Businesses-and underground Hudson Nightlife.
In dialogue with our local Artists and Partners, we have sustainably catalyzed an artist-driven program which will be mounted in Hudson annually, to build and strengthen our communities through contemporary performance & art celebrating artists that, like Jonah, have a long-standing commitment to the City of Hudson while also recognizing the next generation of artists who have chosen to call Hudson their home.
We work deeply at all levels of the city to consider what it means to be part of the Hudson community fabric, and looked inward at our own relationship to the region over the past 10 years. The Hudson Eye was born – to be shared annually in partnership. The Hudson Eye is an annual 10-day public program and urban showcase, artist-driven, with a focus on Dance, Music, Performance, Film, Visual Art, Dining Out, and Nightlife during the final week of August, running through Labor Day weekend, as a celebratory close to Hudson’s two peak tourism weekends of the summer.
