We’re partnering with the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) to make downtown a leading destination for contemporary art. Join us for a tour of illuminated artwork installed in storefront windows in the downtown, experience three live “art happenings” on downtown streets, and conclude the evening with a reception at a pop-up art gallery exhibiting the work of Peekskill Project V and other local artists.  The tour starts at 5pm at The Peekskill Coffee House (101 S. Division St.) For information on the location of downtown artist installations, please see the Winter Windows Art Crawl Map.
