Storm King on October 22, 2010
Storm King Art Center, located on the Hudson Valley just 60 miles from New York City, is a magnificent museum set in 500 acres of fields, meadows, and woodlands. The museum holds a large collection of sculptures set against the expansive landscape that changes with the seasons, celebrating the relationship between art and nature. The ever changing earth and sky define the background for these large scale pieces, allowing visitors to view them differently each time. Among the most popular site-specific installations are Andy Goldsworthy's Wall and Maya Lin's Wavefield. I particularly love Storm King in the autumn, when the foliage on the site and the surrounding hills explodes in fiery colors.
