On Friday, after Thanksgiving, we went on a road trip to the Storm King Art Center. It is an hour’s drive from the city. Jeff drove, and Steve and I enjoyed looking out the windows :-).
The 500-acre grounds are perfectly designed to house large-scale modern sculpture. We spent hours walking the site and enjoying a perfect day.
The trees and grasses are perfect accents to the sculpture. And sometimes people are the perfect accent!
The mirrored picket fence was unassuming from a distance but great fun up close, and low.
My favorite was Andy Goldsworthy’s Wall, behind us, below.
We flew home yesterday. And even though it is always good to be home, we both miss the kid. Luckily, we have been invited to return next Thanksgiving!
Becky, I live less than 10 miles from Storm King! It truly is a treasure, isn’t it?
Where is Storm King? I never heard of it. I’m in Albany about 150 miles north of the city!
It’s probably easiest for you to find it if you google ‘storm king art center’. There’s lots online. You should definitely go!
