About Art Along the Hudson

Art Along the Hudson was created by our founder, Linda Hubbard and has grown over the years to become a resource for Hudson Valley arts enthusiasts, and the people who visit our area every year.

 Our Vision

“Art adds to the quality of life, boosts our local economies, and nourishes our souls” The Hudson Valley is known as an arts destination and the art communities along the Hudson River are known for their Art Days, Events and Studio Tours, and as arts destinations.

Our Mission

The groups that represent the art towns and the art celebrations join together to form a marketing collaborative effort to bring focus and awareness of their art activities. Represent over 1000 artists, 400 studio tour participants, 250 art venues, 150 art festivals and community events – plus art receptions, performances, exhibits, and more.

Goals:

  1. Create a marketing plan for the art events with a focus on monthly and major celebrations & studio tours
  2. Fund the marketing plan (two tier – full and studio tour only) plus brochure & kickoff sponsors.
  3. Create deliverables to promote the arts. Highlight the fact that the Hudson Valley is one of the top 20 place to visit in the world!
  4. Hold a Kickoff Media event to bring together politicians, business leaders, press, artists and art supporters to promote the arts in the Hudson Valley.
  5. Distribute the materials throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.
  6. Maintain a yearly presence.
  7. Share best practices and support each other.
