The creation of a Sing Sing Historic Prison Museum on the banks of the Hudson in Ossining has long been talked about.  The concept is being revived among those who care about Sing Sing’s unique position in the history of the American penal system.  Others are interested in development of the museum because of its tremendous national and international potential as a significant tourist attraction for New York’s Hudson Valley. Find out how you can support this important project by donating

Promoting the President: an Exhibition at the Hudson River Museum
We look for our presidents in paintings, photographs, and sculpture. In honor of our United States Presidents, Promoting the President opens at the Hudson River Museum on February 7 and is on view until May 17, 2015. For this exhibition, Gilbert Stuart’s famous painting, George Washington, on loan to the Museum, as well as, prints, stamps, coins and currency show Washington in images beautiful, respectful, and, sometimes, flamboyant, made to frame our vision of him and charge our patriotism. Washington, the nation’s first soldier and president is a warrior, family man, and a man of faith, whose image is always sought in times of trouble or conflict. He is, too, the prototype for political promotion for the presidents who follow him.
