Reception and Tour: The Historic Woodstock Art Colony: the Arthur A. Anderson Collection

Come discover the importance of Woodstock as an art colony long before the famous music festival in 1969. The remarkable range of work produced there has been the focus of collector Arthur Anderson for three decades, resulting in the largest comprehensive collection of its type—some 1500 objects by 170 artists—all of which he recently donated to the New York State Museum.

1:00 – 2:00 pm: Reception with light refreshments

2:00 pm: Exhibition tour led by Senior Historian and Curator Karen Quinn
