Event description

Description

The Thomas Cole National Historic Site presents the 13th annual Raymond Beecher Lecture, featuring Ned Sullivan, president of Scenic Hudson. In his lecture entitled Still in Eden: Connecting People to the Landscapes that Inspired Thomas Cole. Sullivan will speak to the transformative impacts of the forthcoming Hudson River Skywalk initiative.

The Hudson River Skywalk will create a continuous pedestrain pathway connecting the Thomas Cole National Historic Site and Olana State Historic Site across the Hudson River over the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.The experience will weave together the historic homes and studios of Thomas Cole (1801-1848), founder of American’s first major art movement, the Hudson River School of landscape painting, and Frederic Church (1826-1900), Cole’s legendary student, with the Hudson River Valley views that inspired them. The reconstructed pedestrian walkway with viewing platforms on the Bridge is complete; the pathway to Olana is currently under construction and is scheduled to be finished in October; and the pathway to the Thomas Cole Site is on schedule to be finished this year.

Scenic Hudson is a non profit organization in the Hudson Valley that helps citizens and communities preserve land and farms and create parks where people experience the outdoors and enjoy the Hudson River.
