The Field Gallery of Peekskill is presenting Racing on a Broken Road, Betsy Braun Lane’s monumental exhibit of photography, archival documents, and oral tradition detailing the Peekskill and Cortlandt area’s African/ European/ Native American pioneers and patriots.
In Racing on a Broken Road, Braun Lane skillfully combines her work as an artist, photographer, historian and researcher. Weaving hours of interviews with the area’s long-established Moshier and Peterson families with found archival documents and rare photographs, the collected works form a powerful exhibit detailing 230 years of the African American experience in the Hudson Valley.
