Curator Talk
Hudson Valley Land Acknowledgements: Re-Envisioning the Land 2023
Saturday, January 28 | 3-5pm

Evan Pritchard, co-curator of Restoring Indigenous Voices: Landscapes from the Permanent Collection, will give a presentation. Utilizing a multi-media format, including maps, slides (including text, paintings, and photos) and live performance, he will further acknowledge the original inhabitants of our region, sharing insights about the Native American pre-contact and colonial-era geography of the Woodstock and Shandaken area, based on his many books and new research, much of which has never been published in book form. This presentation will go in depth about the forgotten indigenous history of the sites depicted in each of the twenty paintings on display in the exhibit. These geo-historical revelations acknowledge the sophisticated Algonquin civilization that existed here in Woodstock and Shandaken long before Henry Hudson’s arrival in 1609. This program will take place in the Towbin Wing where viewers can take in the landscapes in the background.
