DISCOVERY: A Poster Project

As you may know, 2009 was a watershed year, marking the 400th anniversary of Hudson and Champlain’s voyages along the river and lake that bear their names—and the 200th anniversary of Fulton’s successful steamboat voyage and establishment of steam commerce on the Hudson River.  As part of Ulster County’s Quadricentennial events, the Ulster County Clerk’s Office sponsored the Discovery Poster Project.

The Discovery Poster Project Exhibition is an exhibit of colorful, insightful and imaginative posters on the theme of “Discovery”. Fourth grade students from 31 schools throughout Ulster County submitted posters to this exhibit. The students were given the opportunity to interpret “Discovery” in their own way and in any medium.  The unique style and content of each poster shows the creativity and talent that our students possess. 

It has always been important to the Ulster County Clerk’s Office to reach out to students and involve them in the documented history of our county.  We hope the creativity and talent of these students inspires others for years to come!
