On Saturday, September 30, the Hudson River Sculpture Trail will be officially dedicated and opened. The project lines the shore of the Harbors at Haverstraw and will be expanded along the waterfront promenade as construction is completed. The Hudson River Sculpture Trail is:
“. . . a visionary and ambitious project for the Hudson River. The goal is to bring 100 significant outdoor sculptures to the banks of the Hudson River from Manhattan to Saratoga by September 2009, when the celebration of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial will take place.
The Hudson River Sculpture Trail will be accompanied by literature and programs designed to bring local area residents and students in contact with the artwork and to educate viewers about the artists and their work. Special art-related education programs will be designed in conjunction with local Advisory Committees consisting of community leaders and residents, who will assist in developing programs that reflect the needs and interests of each community.
The Hudson River Sculpture Trail at Haverstraw, sponsored by Ginsburg Development Companies LLC, is a permanent display that can be visited seven days a week during daylight and evening hours.”
