Please arrive at Storm King around 11:30, and meet at the Café. Identify yourself as ARLIS members to the attendant at the admissions gate and you’ll be directed to the Café. We can gather there and have lunch before the tour. Either bring a picnic or lunch can be purchased there. (I may bring some possible lunch/beverage items—let me know if others plan to do so) There is a roof over the pavilion where the Café is, so if it’s raining (which it won’t be!) we will be protected somewhat. Watch the forecast and bring rain gear if needed (it won’t be!). The tour will start at 1, and lasts a little over an hour. There is an indoor gallery as well as the grounds to see throughout the rest of the afternoon. The Center closes at 5pm.
Storm King Art Center is one of the world’s leading sculpture parks. Located in New York’s Hudson Valley about an hour north of New York City, Storm King encompasses over 500 acres of rolling hills, woodlands, and fields of native grasses and wildflowers. This landscape provides a dramatic backdrop for a collection of more than 100 large-scale sculptures by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time, including Alice Aycock, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, Mark di Suvero, Andy Goldsworthy, Sol Lewitt, Maya Lin, Louise Nevelson, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, Richard Serra, David Smith, and Ursula von Rydingsvard, among others.
