Hastings-on-Hudson Village Arts Commission and Hastings Historical Society presents a juried exhibit celebrating the public’s fascination with the moon and Hastings unique place in lunar history. Dr. Henry Draper, pioneer of astrophotography, took the earliest photographs of the moon with a telescope at his observatory in Hastings.

The Arts Commission is calling artists to explore the magic, mystery and meaning of moon throughout our lives. From mythology to madness, from magnetism to man’s race to space, we ask you to answer the question, “What does the moon conjure for you?” Work must be suitable for hanging: painting, printmaking, mixed media, watercolor, collage, pastels, and photography. Selection Process: More than one artwork may be selected.
