Event description

Description

Join Dr. Haffner, associate curator of the exhibition Hudson Rising at the New-York Historical Society, as she considers contemporary debates over the Anthropocene—the idea that humankind is not separate from nature but a force of nature in itself—and Cole’s paintings of Catskill Creek from the 19th century. The stretch of land along Catskill Creek that appears in the paintings was recently preserved as a public park in Catskill and is located less than a mile and a half from the Thomas Cole Site.

The Sunday Salons are presented in Thomas Cole’s New Studio once a month from January through April at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, New York. All Salons start at 2 pm and will be followed by audience discussions. Now in its 16th year, the Sunday Salons present today’s most engaging speakers on topics relating to American landscape painting.
