Event Type Art Show Description The Pink & Blue art show at Howland Cultural Center from Aug 10 to Sep 29, 2024, celebrates how the environmental movement in the US began in the Hudson Valley and spread around the world. The folk singer Pete Seeger who lived in Beacon, NY is most associated with the Environmental movement in the Putnam Valley. He established an organization called Clearwater, which built a sloop that is free for the public to ride from Beacon to explore the beauty of the Hudson River. In 2004, the sloop Clearwater was named to the National Register of Historic Places for its groundbreaking role in the environmental movement and its dedication to the preservation of the Hudson River.
