Historic Hudson Valley: Washington Irving and the Art of Storytelling

Planning for public programs, including support for research, concept design, audience evaluation, and design workshops exploring the stories and life of Washington Irving at his home.

HHV seeks funding for a public programming initiative that will make a meaningful connection between the tales of Washington Irving and the art of American storytelling by transforming the visitor experience at Irving's home Sunnyside. The humanities themes include 1) stories play an essential role in the American experience, 2) through his Hudson River Valley stories, Irving made an essential contribution to the development of regional literature in the United State, and 3) Washington Irving fashioned Sunnyside, his riverfront estate, to embody his creative spirit. The project incorporates public programs, both onsite and online, for a diverse audience including culture-seekers, families, teachers, and students.
