The Hudson Valley Initiative Gallery Meet is the second in a series of gatherings in the Hudson Valley designed to bring people and organizations from the region together for an exchange of ideas, projects, and opportunities. Three roundtable conversations will be framed by student work of Columbia University GSAPP’s Fall 2017 Urban Design studio, which will be on display in the gallery. Participants are invited to stay for one or all of them as time allows. The goal of the event is to share proposals, explore new possibilities, discover opportunities and encourage collaboration for the design and planning of the future of the Hudson Valley.
Free and open to the public.
