Hudson River School, Forever® | USPS Stamps
Four works by major artists of the Hudson River School were issued as postage stamps by the U.S. Postal Service in August 2014. They are the 12th issuance in the series, American Treasures.
When the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz exhibited The Hudson River to Niagara Falls: 19th-century American Landscape Paintings from the New-York Historical Society, back in 2009 during the Hudson 400 celebrations, the Museum and the Art History Department organized a companion symposium Revisiting the Hudson: Nineteenth-century Landscape Painting in Context.

Organizer Prof. Kerry Dean Carso, now Art History Department Chair, has announced that the papers from this symposium will go to press. Watch this space for more news.
