A Unique Event Space
What They Are about
A non-profit multidisciplinary arts center in Hudson, NY, Basilica Hudson supports the creation, production and presentation of independent and innovative arts and culture while fostering sustainable community. The spectacular building, a glorious industrial church, serves as a striking backdrop to all of Basilica Hudson’s programs. The broad range of programming is presented April to November each year, and welcomes a range of local, regional and national audiences.
Basilica Hudson’s artistic program has taken shape through collaborations with many partners, visiting artists, and friends, supported by adventurous audiences and community members. The arts center draws inspiration from its location — from explorers past, to the Hudson River School painters, through the industrial revolution, and now finding a new resurgence here in art, agriculture and community. It has expanded its roster to include a range of community programs and major annual events.
Founded in 2010 by musician Melissa Auf der Maur and filmmaker Tony Stone, Basilica Hudson makes its home in a spectacular solar-powered reclaimed 1880s industrial factory on the waterfront of the historic City of Hudson. Weekend destination events comprise the core of Basilica Hudson’s music, performance, film, food and literary programming, alongside regular film screenings series, art exhibitions, and other community gatherings.
The building itself is breathtaking, and the programming and now well-established annual events are entirely unique and brilliant
