Cammindando | Blithewood Garden and Hudson River Views

While the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies (CCS) celebrated its twentieth anniversary  I enjoyed a stroll in the Blithewood Garden, located near the Levy Institute. This formal Italian garden was designed by Francis Hoppin, an alumnus of the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White, at the turn of the twentieth century. The formal axis introduces a sequence of view to announce its westernmost final destination: a framed view of the Hudson river and Catskill mountains in the background.

"Anti-Establishment" included a day long art openings and performances at the Hessel Museum.
