ALBANY, N.Y. (September 15, 2009) -- The University at Albany kicks off its semester-long community commemoration for Hudson 400 with the opening of the University Art Museum’s exhibition, “Uncharted.” Set against the larger context of travel and discovery, this group exhibition considers the potentialities and perils of navigating unfamiliar waters.
The exhibit marks the first of UAlbany’s three-part Hudson 400 program: Art Exhibition, Talks and Concert, and Conference. The program explores the impact of the historic voyages of Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain and the influence of the Hudson River in particular on history, economics, transportation, art, and literature. The Talks and Concert series is funded by the New York Council for the Humanities.
