Community Projects

Building and enriching our community through the arts is an important part of our mission. Read more about successful community projects:

LEAP PROGRAM, an after-school partnership between HVCCA and the Peekskill Public School System, that was designed to introduce advanced 5th and 6th graders to international artists and literature. The students participated in in-depth discussions, creative writing, and leadership techniques that prepare them to lead tours through the museum’s exhibitions.

THE BANNER PROJECT brought together six to eight artists to mentor over 300 youth to create large-scale community engaged art installations.

PUBLIC TILE PROJECT called upon 2000 students to design tiles for a trail from the Peekskill Train Station to the HVCCA. The project was the brainchild of Dr. Livia Straus, and artists Jo-Ann Brody and Sarah Haviland.
