Years In Review
2022 was a year of milestones. We expanded our programming to welcome more artists, neighbors and collaborators to our riverfront factory than ever before. From the launch of our new weekly Jupiter Nights series, to the return of Basilica Farm & Flea in full capacity, to the official start of construction on the Basilica Net Zero Campus project, this past season laid the groundwork for a new era of connectivity at Basilica Hudson.
We entered 2021 under a veil of unpredictability, with the lessons of 2020 as our guide. Through the innovation and trust from our collaborators and supporters, Basilica Hudson was fortunate to present a season of connection, safely welcoming visitors and independent voices back into our reclaimed industrial solar factory.
We are honored to have hosted over 30 events in 2021, all of which were free except three!
From documentary to drag, and from painting to performance art, our supporters and partners helped us keep the doors open, the films rolling and the music playing for our ninth season of programming.
2020 was Basilica Hudson’s 10th Anniversary Season. The momentum was palpable; then COVID-19 brought us to a sudden halt. Event postponements turned into cancelations, and like so many other arts organizations, nonprofits and independent venues, we had to completely rethink what was possible in 2020. But our commitment and energy did not recede.
As always we welcomed talented new individuals to the Basilica family in the form of visiting artists, activists, collaborators, supporters and team members. We dreamed big and expanded our programming across the board, from film, to music, to visual art, to environmental advocacy. Thanks to enhanced support we increased the number of FREE programs that we were able to offer, to more readily come together in this remarkable river city.
Basilica Hudson welcomed people of all walks of life and art to our industrial factory in 2017, with film, music, conversations, visual art and performance fueling a season of experimentation, ritual and exchange. We are committed to offering a platform for independent voices, and cultural and environmental sustainability anchors our program.
We introduced three brand-new Film + Media screening series alongside the return of our summer flicks; Music reverberated louder and longer than ever in our industrial church; Art of all disciplines from all walks of life was on view and ready for interaction; and we redoubled our dedication towards our Food + Community, supporting environmental and economical sustainability.
From being voted Best New Venue by our friends at Metroland, to welcoming over 10,000 people through our doors, we thank everyone for their continued support and participation in what we hope will be a longterm anchor in Hudson Valley Cultural and Community life.
