Hyde Park Visual History Project


video description

The Hyde Park Visual History Project is a community‐centered artistic project that engages the elaborate evolution of the local landscape and its inhabitants through images and sound. Serving as a dynamic meeting point for the community, the arts, and the history of Hyde Park, NY, the project builds an understanding of place through donated images, home movies, film, and audio. Matthew Slaats presented the collected visual and auditory material at significant sites in the community throughout the summer of 2009, culminating in an installation at the historic Hyde Park Drive-In Theatre.
