Locations: HVCCA + public parks + industrial spaces and storefronts in Peekskill

HVCCA proudly presents the 6th edition of Peekskill Project, a public art festival 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 6 will engage the urban environment and its inhabitants, through site-specific art exhibitions, performances and workshops throughout the city.

On view at multiple locations: 

September 27th – December 31st, 2015

The opening on September 27th was only the beginning!

There will be events, performances, workshops, and docent led tours during the exhibit, all the way through December! On October 3rd and 4th, docent tours of the entirety of Peekskill Project 6 will be available and free to the public. Check back frequently for updates on dates and times of these fantastic upcoming events, and continue to enjoy the art of Peekskill Project 6 through December 31st.

Proposals for Peekskill Project 6 were selected and reviewed by a committee. The 9 artists and curators on the committee were selected based on their international scope as well as their understanding of the local community and environment. The committee consists of: Xavier Acarin & Roxana Fabius, Jenni Crain, Alessandro Facente, Geoff Feder, Chelsea Haines, Clara Halpern, Nina Mouritzen, James Mulvaney, and Jodi Waynberg, as well as representatives from HVCCA. Emilie Nilsson is Peekskill Project 6 Coordinator and Lead Curator.

“HVCCA is the most dynamic contemporary art site in Westchester… Maybe one day, these regional, more experimental art places might supercede art-stately New York City.” —Ben Genocchio, NY Times
