This past weekend, I visited Storm King Art Center for the first time. It is a 500-acre sculpture park in the Hudson Valley. It is about one and half hours from NYC by car and is sooo worth it. The sculptures are massive, and there is an incredible amount of beautiful, open visual space around them. Along with Andy Goldsworthy’s 3000 ft snaking rock wall, there were many large and beautiful metal sculptures. Other highlights were Richard Serra’s half-buried iron walls and an enormous, pyramid shaped sculpture made with 60-ft iron I-beams (pictured below).
