Storm King Art Center

Mark di Suvero,
IK OOK (left) and Are Years What? (For Marianne Moore), 1967

The photograph above of di Suvero's sculpture was my main point of reference for Storm King until I had the great fortune of visiting it in mid October. I knew it was immense (500 acres) and imposing (over 100 monumental Post WWII sculptures). I wanted to see it during autumn and it proved to be beautiful.

Tal Streeter, Endless Column, 1968

Alexander Lieberman, Iliad, 1974-76

Alyson Shotz, Viewing Scope, 2006

Louise Nevelson's City on the High Mountain, 1983 through the windows of the main house.

Archive photographs from the original installation in the main house.

I can't wait to return to visit this sculpture above (from the Storm King website) - Andy Goldsworthy, Five Men, Seventeen Days, Fifteen Boulders, One Wall, 2010.

In addition, there is a Maya Lin Wave Field to visit and bicycles to be rented. Truly an amazing place to see sculpture in a beautiful landscape!
