Catskills Arts & Culture

 
Experience the beauty of the Catskills' and the mythical lore of the Emerald Isle with festivals celebrating the arts, music and more.

From Thomas Cole's first brush strokes to the founding of the Hudson River School of Art, the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County have played muse to artists, poets, sculptures, writers and photographers for centuries. The rugged cloves and plunging waterfalls captivated painters and authors alike with their untamed majesty.

Hudson River School Art Trail

Hike the Hudson River School Art Trail and experience the landscapes made famous by painters such as Thomas Cole and Albert Bierstadt over a century ago. At each of the first eight sites along the trail, a special metal plaque with a rubbing medallion allows visitors to do a pencil rubbing as a keepsake.
