“The Hudson River Museum embraces diverse voices and artistic and scientific discovery,” said Masha Turchinsky, Director. “We’re thrilled to launch #HRMAfterDark, a new series that is as fresh, creative, and social as this dynamic generation of culture seekers we’re seeing in the community.” This event is the first in a series; additional events will be held in April and October 2018. The series is sponsored by Simone Development Companies and Westchester Magazine; the January 19th event has additional support from Fortina, Yonkers Brewing Company,and Doc’s Draft Hard Cider.
HRM After Dark is presented by the HRM Contemporaries Council, a dynamic new group of dedicated young professionals who champion diverse perspectives to enrich the collective experience at the HRM. The members hail from throughout Westchester and New York City, and bring new ideas from a range of industries including art, architecture, education, film, marketing, food and wine, publishing, and real estate.
Katherine Han, a member of the newly-formed Council, who is involved in the local cultural community, added, “For too long, we felt as if we needed to go to New York City for these kinds of social experiences. That’s all changing in Yonkers and throughout Westchester. We’ve got creative critical mass now and we’re excited to see that the HRM champions us as part of a new wave.”
Proceeds from #HRMAfterDark will support educational programs and exhibitions at the Museum.

The Hudson River Museum is the largest cultural institution in Westchester County and a multidisciplinary complex that draws its identity from its site on the banks of the Hudson River, seeking to broaden the cultural horizons of all its visitors. The Museum collections focus on 19th-century through contemporary American Art; Glenview, an 1876 house on the National Register of Historic Places; Hudson Riverama, an environmental teaching gallery; a state-of-the-art, 120-seat planetarium, and a 400-seat outdoor amphitheater. It presents exhibitions, programs, teaching initiatives, research, collection, preservation, and conservation – a wide range of activities that interpret its collections, interests, and communities. hrm.org
