The Hudson Museum’s mission is to celebrate cultural diversity and inclusion through our exhibitions, events and programs. We are all interconnected through our common humanity. We decry the death of George Floyd and other senseless violence. Bigotry, racism, inequality and injustice must be addressed and to this end, we will continue to work to honor and reaffirm our mission to foster inclusivity and diversity in all that we do.
