Described as Hudson New York’s “Outsider Artist” Earl Swanigan transports his latest creations on a furniture dolly. His primitive paintings of personified cats, dogs and chickens done on recycled materials are a common sight along Warren Street. Earl is a prominent feature and one of the woven threads of fabric that make Hudson unique. I felt my visual portrayal of life in the city would not be complete without him. If you have other ideas of images that you think would help tell the story of Hudson please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
