Highlighting works from the Hudson River School movement founded by Thomas Cole, Mr. Seidel features Cole, his followers and other artists that have inspired and promoted what has been called “America’s best idea.”

Mr. Seidel also makes connections between Ohioans, including Stan Hywet’s own passionate conservationist Congressman John Seiberling and his role in establishing Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Advance registration required.
