PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Words -- and their power and meaning -- are central to a new exhibit at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, according to a report by The New York Times.

There are 70 works incorporating text by 55 artists in the “Word” show in mediums ranging from paint to print and from bronze to, yes, grass seed, The New York Times report said.

A big part of the show is the “I’m Tired” project which melds performance with the written word and focuses on “the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions and stereotypes,” according to the center’s website.

Participants, the center said, were asked to complete the phrase: “I’m tired of …”

According to The New York Times article, the “I’m Tired” project wraps up on May 1 while the “Word” show runs through July 31.

The HVCCA is located at 1701 Main St.
