Newburgh, NY might not be the epicenter of art and culture in the United States, but there certainly isn’t a lack of attractions in this area. Already one of the most beautiful geographical locations in the country, the surrounding community provides plenty to see and experience when visiting the Newburgh area and the rest of Hudson Valley. Come stay at the Stockbridge Ramsdell House in the center of Newburgh. The Stockbridge Ramsdell House, a graceful Queen Anne Victorian located in the beautiful historic district overlooks the Hudson River, and we believe it’s a piece of art itself. Here’s a look at three distinct art attractions within a short distance of our bed and breakfast.
Dia Becaon : Since its founding in 1974, Dia has been dedicated to supporting individual artists and to providing long-term, in-depth presentations of their art. Dia:Beacon’s expansive galleries have been specifically designed for the display of the artworks to which Dia is committed, many of which, because of their character or scale, could not be easily accommodated by more conventional museums. Each artist’s work is displayed in a dedicated gallery or galleries, many of which were created in collaboration with the artists whose works they will hold. It’s located just across the Newburgh Beacon Bridge in Beacon, NY on the east shores of the Hudson.
Storm King Art Center : Widely celebrated as one of the world’s leading sculpture parks, Storm King Art Center has welcomed visitors from across the globe for fifty years. It is located only one hour north of New York City, in the lower Hudson Valley, where its pristine 500-acre landscape of fields, hills, and woodlands provides the setting for a collection of more than 100 carefully sited sculptures created by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time. It’s only located 17 minutes south of Newburgh.
Ann Street Gallery : Under the umbrella of Safe Harbors of the Hudson, a nonprofit organization that combines supportive housing and the arts, the gallery has evolved into a venue that has supported hundreds of artists through a highly respected exhibition program and community events. Since its inception in 2007, the unique 1679 square foot gallery has hosted a new exhibition approximately every six weeks, featuring artists, from across the nation and abroad, who work in a wide cross-section of media and divergent genres. This is located less than a mile from the Stockbridge Ramsdell House in Newburgh.
