Storm King Art Center

  • November 12, 2011 · 2:00 PM

A member requested we visit the Storm King Art Center. I hear it's a beautiful place to visit. This will be my first time visiting the art center.

Widely celebrated as one of the world’s leading sculpture parks, Storm King Art Center has welcomed visitors from across the globe for fifty years. It is located only one hour north of New York City, in the lower Hudson Valley, where its pristine 500-acre landscape of fields, hills, and woodlands provides the setting for a collection of more than 100 carefully sited sculptures created by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time.

    You dont need to know anything about abstract art to enjoy Storm Kings wide open space and "ROLLING" hills (right Moni) and the company of really nice people.

    I was just there today (11/5). If you plan on walking in the fields, then definitely bring hiking boots...gets a little muddy in spots. Also if it is a chilly day, wear layers and you will be warmer walking around than riding on the tram...brrr! Painters Tavern in Cornwall is also a good place...nice variety! Enjoy!

    Also suggested to wear comfortable, durable shoes, bring snack food and water (there is a cafe, but not always open), and your camera! For those who'd like to go to dinner after, Woody's All Natural Burgers and Fries is close by. www.woodysallnatural.com/

    It's been recommended to watch a 2001 movie "Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time" (http://www.imdb.com/ti...) - an ethereally, breathtakingly beautiful documentary that shows one of the most memorable artworks in the park in a particularly spellbinding way. It will make your visit more fun, and you'll want to walk the entire length of Goldsworthy's Wall - which is completely worth it, as it holds surprises big and small on all of its ends.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
