artists & participants
HVCCA is proud to present 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. This year Peekskill Project will feature an exciting variety of sculpture, photography, installation, video and performance art by approximately 60 international and local artists, exhibited in industrial buildings, storefronts, and parks around the city. The artists are using the rich history of Peekskill, the surrounding area, as well as their own varied personal narratives, as a generative tool to create their site-specific works. Many of the projects presented will also directly involve and engage the community in the creative process.
