In the nineteenth century, Hudson River School artists such as Thomas Cole and Frederic Church and landscape designers such as Andrew Jackson Downing, Calvert Vaux, and Frederick Law Olmsted planted the seeds of a national identity through their works in the Hudson River Valley. Professor Flad introduces this historic cultural landscape and presents some personal perspectives on local and regional efforts to preserve this heritage.
