Bridges and the Span of Time: Fifty Artist Survey Exhibition of Bridges of the Hudson Valley
Darryl Bautista, Fireworks over the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge.

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY.- Poughkeepsie, New York has a very special bridge, the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge completed in 1888, spans the Hudson River at Highland and Poughkeepsie, half way between New York City and Albany, NY. At that time, for a period of one year, it was the longest bridge in the world measuring 6,767 feet long and 212 feet above the water surface. It was conceived by then Mayor Harvey Eastman and was built to carry heavy cargo of lumber, grain, coal and other goods from the farm and steel belts of the Midwest to industrial New England. After 1888, cargo trains didn’t have to go down to New York City and then up to New England, the bridge shortened travel time by many hours and helped speed the American industrial and agricultural revolutions.

Bridges and the Span of Time celebrates the P.H. Railroad Bridge, all 17 Hudson Valley bridges and the 2009 opening of the Walkway Over the Hudson, the world’s longest and highest pedestrian bridge. This exhibit is also part of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial, 1609- 2009. The group exhibition to be presented at G.A.S. Visual Art & Performance Space and at the Salvation Art Gallery at 214 Main St. (seven doors east of G.A.S.) will consist of approximately 150 works which includes paintings, large scale panoramic photographs, sculpture, photo-light boxes, drawings, prints, archival photos, lenticular and stereoscopic photos and mixed media works on the theme of bridges. Video and archival film footage will also be presented.
