It's been at least a decade since I first visited the Storm King Art Center, about an hour north of NYC in the west side of the Hudson in New Windsor, NY. It's ridiculously close to Beacon--which I visit at least once a month--so it's a bit embarrassing that I haven't returned sooner. Founded 50 years ago, it's 500 acres of rolling land, meadow, and forest dotted with fascinating sculptures by some of modern art's masters, including Alexander Calder, Maya Lin, Andy Goldsworthy, and numerous others.
It's a beautiful, beautiful place to spend the day and wander around. Let the photos speak for themselves...
