Storm King Art Center

Storm King Art Center is a museum that celebrates the relationship between sculpture and nature. Five hundred acres of landscaped lawns, fields and woodlands provide the site for postwar sculptures by internationally renowned artists. At Storm King, the exhibition space is defined by sky and land. Unencumbered by walls, the subtly created flow of space is punctuated by modern sculpture. The grounds are surrounded by the undulating profiles of the Hudson Highlands, a dramatic panorama integral to the viewing experience. The sculptures are affected by changes in light and weather, so no two visits are the same.

Permanent Collection

The focus of Storm King Art Center's distinguished permanent collection of American and European modern sculpture is on large abstract welded steel works from the 1960's to the present, although figurative works are also on view. A core group of thirteen sculptures by David Smith anchor a collection of outstanding works by modern masters such as Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, and Louise Nevelson. The Art Center also has superb works by many other contemporary sculptors, including Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alice Aycock, Mark di Suvero, Robert Grosvenor, Nam June Paik, and Ursula von Rydingsvard.
