The exhibit will be open Saturdays from 1 – 4 January 21st through April 15th

In 1982, photographer Brad Hess walked Main Street in Nyack every Sunday morning, taking over 3,000 black and white photographs. Trying out a new film, he decided Main Street was where he would experiment with it. As the images emerged from his dark room, he became fascinated with the quality of the film as well as the opportunities Main Street offered him. He returned nearly every Sunday morning for the next year, walking from 9W to the riverfront.


82 Pieces of ’82, Main Street, Nyack will be our first traditional “opening” since COVID. Please join us in thanking Brad for sharing his amazing work with us, and hearing what he has to say about these street scenes and their meaning for Nyack. We look forward to your questions, feedback and commentary. Brad will have the floor around 1:30. Please come masked – we want to minimize everyone’s exposure to our current variant with its high transmission potential. And for that reason also, our refreshments are very minimal.
