Storm King Art Center

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, Celia navigated, 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.

This trip was Celia’s idea. She has some really great ideas!

We flew home yesterday. And even though it is always good to be home, we both miss the kids. Luckily, we have been invited to return next Thanksgiving!
