Storm King Art Center

Storm King Art Center is located approximately 70 miles north of NYC in the Hudson River Valley.  Storm King is recognized as one of the premier outdoor sculpture parks in the world with over 100 monumental pieces displayed on 500 rolling acres of the Appalachian Mountains.

The Art Center was established in 1960 by Ralph E. Ogden and his son-in-law, H. Peter Stern with the intention of creating a center for the visual arts and music.  The Center takes its name from Storm King Mountain, a majestic nearby peak.

Visiting Storm King has been on my bucket list for quite a long time.  My 10-day visit to NYC allowed me the time to take a day-trip to the Art Center.  Tom and Lisa joined me on a remarkable visit to this amazing sculpture garden.
