Visit the David Rockefeller Creative Arts Center at Pocantico (DR Center) during Upstate Art Weekend (UPAW), an annual event celebrating the cultural vibrancy of upstate New York through events and open exhibitions. 

Throughout the weekend, visitors can view Portraits of Process, the DR Center’s current exhibition showcasing 34 expertly crafted bronze life castings created for the American Artists’ Hand Archive using a traditional lost-wax casting technique. 

Portraits of Process documents both the physical realities and personal narratives​ of contemporary American visual artists ​through their primary agent of creative process and expression: their hands. The exhibition includes casts of the hands of Chuck Close, Elizabeth Strong Cuevas, Mary Frank, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Lucy Kim, Maya Lin, Toshio Odate, Judy Pfaff, Kiki Smith, Ursula Von Rydingsvard, John Waters, and more. This will be the closing weekend of Portraits of Process. 

On July 18 at 7:00 p.m., visitors can enjoy a jazz performance by multi-Grammy-nominated, award-winning saxophonist and composer Ben Wendel and Grammy-winning pianist Kevin Hays. The duo will perform a wide repertoire of original compositions and beloved standards from the jazz canon.
