Plugged In opening May 17 6-10 pm Hudson, NY.

If you happen to not be in Beacon on the evening of May 17 but up Hudson way instead, be sure to check out the exhibit Plugged In. The two week long exhibit will encompass a length of Warren St. seeded with New Media installations. Around 15 artists hailing from the region, some comprising collaborative teams, who incorporate new technologies into their artistic practice will be creating site specific and interactive pieces. Here's a brief write up from this month's Chronogram.
I've traded a few emails with the exhibit curator, Melissa Stafford, but I've only just now become aware of the extent of the exhibit as a site specific exhibit inhabiting the various environs, inside and out, of a stretch of Warren St.
The opening reception will be held at the PARC Foundation at 330 and 336 Warren St. and will include a number of performances in both spaces.
I won't be able to make it to the opening, and it's doubtful that I'll be able to catch the exhibit before it ends on May 31, but I'll try.
If anyone makes it to the opening or does see the exhibit, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

sounds a bit like WOM...which came first? a
nyway, seems like a sincere effort to revitalize an old business district and draw attention to a unique hudson valley arts community....kind of like sitelines could have done (yes, i know it's still going to happen sometime--but i'll believe it when i see it)
i can't wait to see what those two patriotic chicks with dildos are up to.
