River Valley Arts Collective is a nexus for artists and artisans of the Hudson Valley to connect with each other and their broader community through a productive exchange that is generative and transformative. By fostering the cultural landscape of their region, and making space for experimentation, skill sharing and peer to peer learning, RVAC celebrates the value of creative production. Through partnerships with neighboring arts organizations, foundations, studios, and farms, they curate exhibitions, commission new work, organize outdoor installations, give artists both material and monetary grants, coordinate residencies, host workshops, and spark discussions on a wide range of subjects.
