Artist Eric Diehl presents a panoramic scenario depicting a stretch of the Hudson River at the Beacon waterfront, touching on shifts of human interaction with the river from pre-history to the present day.
Join the artist in person as he displays and illuminates his painted work, which seamlessly weaves an abbreviated history of Hudson area plants and wildlife along a 30-foot canvas in a unique outdoor installation. The work will be displayed by the pond next to the Water Ecology Center.
The event is an outdoor display, so no RSVP is necessary.
