Taking Root: Immigrant Stories of the Hudson Valley


Taking Root: Immigrant Stories of the Hudson Valley Taking Root is the newest exhibition on view at the Reher Center Gallery. This exhibition features the personal and family stories of 36 narrators from 22 countries and 6 continents who have made a home in the Hudson Valley. They shared their stories with us between 2019 and 2022 as part of the Reher Center’s growing Hudson Valley Immigrant Oral History Project. Their experiences are brought to life through oral histories, tintype portraits, and the smells of beloved cuisines. This multimedia exhibition amplifies the stories of local immigrants as never before. Come listen to the voices of our storytellers – their joys, tastes, tears, and laughter – and immerse yourself in what is unique to each person and what is held in common about being an immigrant to the Hudson Valley.
