“58 Snake” is an Art Installation and a Benefit for the Greene County Council on the Arts. Curious? “58 Snake” is an art installation in an uninhabited farmhouse in Catskill. The farmhouse, a classic brick from the second empire period, was built circa 1880. It is large and resplendent with 10 foot ceilings, early moldings and deep windows. The property is adjacent to the new Scenic Hudson property leading to the banks of Catskill Creek, where Thomas Cole did some of his Hudson River paintings. Though without electricity and running water, 58 Snake remains magnificently tattered with rooms adorned with torn, yet hand stenciled wallpaper, turn of the century claw foot porcelain bathtubs, sweeping banisters aside steep stairways, hand carved wooden mantels and a porch wrapped with a multitude of windows. Enter 10 artists and their unique perspective.
