The Light In Our Eyes: Youth Visions of the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse


In a historic collaboration, ACC joins forces with the Hudson Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society (HALPS) to commemorate the 150th birthday of this iconic beacon, teaming up with high schools in Athens-Coxsackie, Catskill, and Hudson. The exhibition will feature student artworks depicting the lighthouse, river life, and river lore, accompanied by poetry and long-form writing crafted in the classroom. The opening event will see students presenting their texts, followed by a captivating monologue performed by an actor, shedding light on the life of Augustin Fresnel, the inventor of the lens technology used in lighthouses worldwide.
