"Otsego on the Hudson" — The 2013 Annual Benefit Gala
Friday, July 19 • 6:30 pm at the Fenimore Art Museum
Tickets $175 per person
Celebrate our vistas, views, and visions. Take part in a grand 19th-century picnic on the lawn inspired by the Fenimore's spectacular exhibition The Hudson River School: Nature and the American Vision. Soar to new heights, literally and figuratively, with tethered hot air balloon rides. Dine on the lawn under a stunning sail tent, taking in a beautiful vista that could be straight out of a Hudson River School painting. Croquet, badminton, live music, and tours of Otsego: A Meeting Place will entertain as well.
The evening will also feature live and silent auctions. Preview the auction items here.
Signed, limited edition prints of Otsego Twilight are for sale to benefit the museums. Order here. An oil painting by Robert J. Schneider, Otsego Twilight depicts Otsego Lake from Hyde Hall in the Hudson River School style. (View the painting.) Otsego Twilight is currently on display in the Fenimore Art Museum's second floor. You can also bid to purchase the original painting. (Download bid form here.)
All the proceeds from the Gala support our stellar educational programs. Tickets are $175 per person.
