The Hudson Eye Stimulates Creativity and Diversity with a new Multi-Venue Series

Patrick Higgins is a New York based composer/performer of experimental music. Higgins has composed works for some of the nation's leading ensembles, ranging from chamber orchestra works, percussion cycles, and string quartets to smaller ensembles and soloists. He has scored works for television, museum exhibitions, and films both short-form and feature-length. As a soloist, he performs both classical acoustic and electric guitar in genre-bending contexts, utilizing extended technique and electronic processing.

Following ten years of decisive activity in Hudson, Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation announces its inaugural new program, The Hudson Eye, arranged by ascendant curatorial voice Aaron Levi Garvey. This series aims to stimulate cultural and economic diversity in the area, taking place August 23rd - September 2nd, 2019 timed through Labor Day Weekend in historic downtown Hudson, NY. The Hudson Eye curatorially frames 20 local and visiting artists, with performances, exhibitions, and talks highlighting ten issues of interest to the local community, with a “Dine Around” series as well. The initiative steers an anonymous $50,000 local matching grant to the arts economy of Hudson.

“As a Hudson resident, my nonprofit organization aims to catalyze a local artist-driven program to amplify local and newcomer artists’ voices in Hudson,” remarks Jonah Bokaer. “For nearly 200 years the Hudson area as been a source of inspiration for artists, and The Hudson Eye pays tribute to our creative sanctuary, and many communities that are our Hudson.”

The Hudson Eye is an artist-driven 10-day public program and urban showcase, with a focus on Dance, Music, Performance, Film, Visual Art, Dining Out, and Nightlife. Works by the following artists will be featured during the First Edition of Hudson Eye: Jonah Bokaer Choreography, Ryder Cooley, Laura Gutierrez, Patrick Higgins, Rachel Libeskind, Elena Mosely, Tony Orrico, Tijana Petrovic´, Matthew Placek, Davon, Betti Rollo, Erika Schipa, Sheida Soleimani, Timothy Stanley, J.M. Tate, Alexander Turnquist and others.

“Collectively our goal is to build and strengthen the existing arts community in Hudson through contemporary performance & art by celebrating artists,that have a longstanding commitment to the City of Hudson,” says Aaron Levi Garvey, curator of The Hudson Eye. “This platform also celebrates the next generation of artists that will ensure that the City Of Hudson continues to foster a diverse creative community for years to come.
