Founded by the Marc and Livia Straus family, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art strives to present interdisciplinary programs that enrich the community through many forms of contemporary art. Works from renowned and emerging contemporary artists share the Center's 12,000-square feet of exhibition space with a variety of long-term installations, several made by participants in the nonprofit’s artist in residence program. The HVCCA supplies artists with studio space, living quarters, and an extended stipend in order to foster creative work on-site and engage in an active discussion with visitors or talkative muses. Special events range from panel discussions and film screenings to a monthly family art day with lessons for parents and kids based on current exhibits. The Center has also organized special projects including the Banner Project, where artists mentor more than 300 youth in creating a large-scale installation, and the Public Tile Project, where 2,000 students design tiles that for a trail from Peekskill Train Station to the Center.

Family owned since 1968, WestArt Gallery charges toward the half-century mark behind its motto, "You name it, we'll frame it." The business services both retail and wholesale clients at two locations, including one in Yonkers, where all orders are completed on the premises. WestArt clients can also browse the Thornwood show room, stocked with a variety of artwork and custom framing choices. There, steady hands seal special mementos behind glass, such as photographs, diplomas, and apprehended art thieves. When they're not situating frames around keepsakes, the WestArt staff is re-varnishing oil paintings to ensure that pigments remain glossy and vibrant well beyond their expiration date.

Founded in 1960, Storm King Art Center speckles 500 acres of landscaped hills, fields, and woodlands with postwar sculptures by international artists. The art center’s permanent collection showcases more than 100 abstract and figurative pieces made out of steel, aluminum, and other elements that range in size from welded I-beam structures to artistically littered pet rocks. Curators precisely nestle each work in the undulating Hudson Valley highlands, placing Alexander Calder’s Five Swords atop an emerald hill and Alice Aycock's Three-Fold Manifestation II under the tree line. An indoor complex shelters perishable works unable to withstand inclement weather alongside The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty, a temporary exhibition exploring the center’s history through archival documents, artists’ sketches, and framed photos of the founders holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Taking a safari, like using night-vision binoculars to watch raccoons separate paper and plastic, reveals how animals truly behave in nature. Immerse yourself in the wilds of Kenya with today's Getaway from Odyssey Safaris. Choose from the following options:Airfare is priced per person, but hotel stays are based on double occupancy, so single travelers should purchase the one-person option in order to get the full package. Click here to see the eight-day itinerary. Jets will depart New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and touch down in Nairobi, where Odyssey Safaris staff await to shuttle guests to the Nairobi Safari Park Hotel, tucked amid 50 acres of manicured gardens. Wayfarers can explore the Kenyan capital for the day or rest up on the hotel's antique four-poster beds. The next morning, the group journeys to the northern plains of Samburu National Reserve for two days in pursuit of elephants, beisa oryx, zebras, and giraffes, grazing against a stunning backdrop of Mount Kenya. After the sun dips below the Rift Valley horizon, tuckered travelers doze off within their luxe tents at Ashnil Samburu camp as the calls of distant animals carry through the night.The following day and a half is spent trekking through Lake Nakuru National Park, with a trip to the shores of the eponymous watering hole, aflutter with millions of pink flamingos on vacation from America's lawns and the occasional rhino trotting along the shore. The cozy, chalet-style rooms at the Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge ensure a good night's sleep, and sunrise on the private patios overlooking Lake Nakuru ushers in an adventure-filled day. The expedition culminates at the Masai Mara National Reserve, one of Kenya's premiere wildlife sanctuaries, punctuated by undulating hills and an abundance of fauna, including more than 53 bird-of-prey species. Elephants lumber about as gazelles dart spritely through the grasslands. Safari-goers may glimpse lions, leopards, and cheetahs stalking prey, or snap photos of hippos sparring in the Mara River. Come nightfall, the well-appointed tents at the Ashnil Mara camp beckon.
