Woodstock Art: A Peek Behind the Scenes

Enjoy a brief behind-the-scenes presentation of a selection of works from the New York State Museum’s Historic Woodstock Art Colony: Arthur A. Anderson Collection. Long before the famous music festival in 1969, Woodstock, New York, was home to what is considered America’s first intentionally created, year-round arts colony—founded in 1902 and still thriving over 100 years later. Collecting the remarkable range of work produced there has been Arthur A. Anderson’s focus for over three decades, resulting in the largest comprehensive assemblage of its type, which he recently donated to the museum.
