storm king

 

 

 

Liz and I spent yesterday at Storm King Art Center in 50 miles north of NYC, in Mountainville, NY.  I’ve been hearing about this place since college, but still, I couldn’t come up with a good reason for having waited so long to visit.    With over 500 acres of landscaped grounds and a permanent collection of monumental sculpture from the 60’s to the present, Storm King is a magical place.  Isolated in a Catskill Mountain valley, the setting could not be more idyllic.  The museum draws attention to the relationship between art and nature; this relationship is evident in much of the work.

The weather was amazing if not unseasonal, and it was a perfect day to drive  some winding mountain roads and to take in some art…  more to come.
