Wednesdays are all about the archive.

These photographs
are part of the CPW photographic archive which is held at the Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz. These people pictured are dressed in costume for the infamous Maverick Festival which took place in Woodstock in the early 1900's. The Maverick was an artist/musician colony founded in 1902. Its existence helped to shape this area as well as enrich it with amazing art and music. Today, all that is left of the Maverick colony is an amazing music space called Maverick Concerts. They have live music events on the weekends all summer. I work on the weekends in the summer so I have not been to a concert yet...but I have heard that it is wonderful and worth checking out.

You can read more about Maverick and see many more photos at the Dorsky website.
