Mill Street Loft has established a multi-arts, environmentally themed community educational center in Scenic Hudson’s River Center at its Long Dock Park in Beacon, N.Y. In addition to this new facility, Scenic Hudson is creating other amenities—a community space, an outdoor performance space, information center, and a “green” gallery—that will allow Mill Street Loft ARTS to expand its already successful art-based programs.
