This weekend brings the annual Peekskill Project, when the streets are brimming with art. Organized by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, the Peekskill Project will feature works by 55 artists, displayed throughout the city. Maps are available, and the city will operate free "Art Buses" between the many installations. Events include a demonstration of the Peruvian Despacho ritual at Annsville Creek, the Coffee Cup Project at the downtown Gazebo, and exhibits and performances at the Hat Factory, the HVCCA, and many downtown businesses. Some of the art pieces will remain on display through November 23. On Sunday, the Hudson Ferry-Go-Round will feature free rides on NY Waterway ferries between Peekskill, Haverstraw, Ossining, and Sleepy Hollow. There will be a variety of events in each town, including live music, street fairs, antique auto shows, art shows, and food tastings.
