Consultation for a permanent interpretation of Thomas Cole's studio at Cedar Grove exploring Cole's art-making and its influence on the Hudson River School of landscape painting.

Thomas Cole (1801-1848) is a central figure in the development of America's cultural identity, having founded its first indigenous art movement, known as the Hudson River School. The Thomas Cole National Historic Site is seeking a grant to develop plans for an interpretive film or multi-media exhibit at the Site, specifically addressing Cole's art-making process. Taking advantage of the unique assets at the Site, including Cole's original home, studio, and art-making equipment; as well as its proximity to the home of his pupil Frederic Church and to their beautiful and well-preserved painting sites, the Site presents a unique opportunity to educate the public in a highly compelling manner about how these important artworks came to be.
