A visit to Storm King Art Center with Family – Overview

My younger daughter and her family (husband and two granddaughters) came to visit last August. It was a gorgeous day and since they hadn’t been then before we decided to go to Storm King Art Center. In case you don’t know it the Storm King Art Center describes it as follows:

Storm King Art Center is a 500-acre outdoor museum located in New York’s Hudson Valley, where visitors experience large-scale sculpture and site-specific commissions under open sky. Since 1960, Storm King has been dedicated to stewarding the hills, meadows, and forests of its site and surrounding landscape. Building on the visionary thinking of its founders, Storm King supports artists and some of their most ambitious works. Changing exhibitions, programming, and seasons offer discoveries with every visit.

I took quite a few pictures, but even these only represent a small fraction of what there is to see. For a more complete view I can heartily recommend: Storm King Art Center Sculpture Guide. If you can find it that is. It seems only to be available used or possibly from the Storm King Art Center Gift shop (which is where I got it).

To me it’s quite unique. I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
