Highland Falls Art Walk

September 1, 2021 - October 28, 2021

Highland Falls Art Walk 2021

Socially Distanced Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit for Families

View: May 3 – October 28, 2021

Free to the Public

The Highland Falls Art Walk is a half-mile-long stretch of 18 large-scale sculptures gracefully lining the Orange County town’s Main Street. Originally the brain child of Nicole Shea of the Eisenhower Leadership Center at West Point in 2015, the project is now run by the Chamber of Commerce with the help of a jury committee. The jury committee has worked with Collaborative Concepts, a nonprofit art organization, based in Putnam County, to support and exhibit professional sculpture since it’s inception.

The Art Walk was originally conceived as an attraction to stimulate interest in Main Street and from those visiting West Point. Minutes from the Bear Mountain Bridge and close to Storm King this Art Walk is easily accessible to all in the Hudson Valley. After a hiatus, the Art Walk
happily returns this year.

The Art gives those visiting West Point an opportunity to take pause, get a cup of coffee and spend time strolling in the town of Highland Falls and be inspired by the art. Given the turmoil and fear of the last year, those travelling to enjoy the Village and art will find it a quiet moment of
respite in the sea of unpredictability.

The sculptures will be on view from May to October 28, 2021. The Walk begins at Thayer Gate and ends at Ladycliff Park. Visitors can hear the artists discuss their work by downloading the Otocast mobile audio app created by Eric Feinstein. The Otocast smartphone app provides viewers the ability to listen to informative recordings about each sculpture along with its creator. If you are looking for inspiration and a quiet leisurely stroll, you will want to visit Highland Falls, stroll the town, experience the outdoor sculptures, have lunch and relax.

Sunday is free parking in town, or $.25 per hour Monday thru Saturday.
