Time + Space Limited in Hudson

Hudson bills itself as “The Walkable City,” but city and state funding for its wide, fully-paved sidewalks is only available for the major streets in commercial areas that already see foot traffic.

The longtime grassroots arts organization Time + Space Limited is located on Columbia Street, a major truck route through the city, and its rubble and pothold-strewn sidewalks have been decimated by years of heavy commercial traffic. Linda Mussmann and Claudia Bruce, TSL’s co-founders and co-directors, lobbied New York State and City of Hudson organizations for months to replace the sidewalks, to no avail.

Last fall, in a quest to make their neighborhood more accessible for wheelchairs, strollers and pedestrians, they decided to take on the project themselves, leaving them with a $30,000 bill — a hefty price for a not-for-profit arts organization that runs on a shoestring budget.

Now TSL is hoping to raise $35,000 through its current Indiegogo campaign, which runs through Tuesday (March 31), to cover the cost of the sidewalk along with fees and rewards. All donations are tax deductible, and rewards will include TSL memberships and invitations to an exclusive event for “sidewalk sponsors.”

On the Film Front…

January 3rd, 2011, 2:41 pm by Greg

Not that Hollywood’s prestige factor is in any danger of being usurped by the glitter ‘n’ glow of Nippertown, but there is a lot of great movie magic being made right around town here…

The Academy Award nominations won’t be announced until Tuesday, January 25, but a number of films with local ties are in the running.

And we ain’t talking about “Salt” or what was that other movie? Oh yeah, “The Other Guys”…

The Academy has narrowed down the Documentary Feature category from 101 qualified entries to 15 finalists – which include such Hudson Valley-connected docs as “Gasland,” “William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe” and “Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer.”

The Academy has also announced the short list in the Animated Feature category, and the 15 finalists include “Idiots and Angels,” by the Woodstock area’s Bill Plympton. And by the way, Plympton’s dark comedy – about a loathsome man who wakes up one morning with a pair of wings that make him do good deeds – will be screened at Time + Space Limited in Hudson at 7:30pm Thursday-Saturday and at 4pm on Sunday. Tix are $7; students $5.
