Storm King Art Center
Undoubtedly one of the world’s most engaging sculpture parks, Storm King lies an hour north of New York City. Sat in the lower Hudson Valley, the beautiful 500-acre landscape acts as a wonderful setting for a collection of more than 100 sculptures by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time.
Named after a mountain in the vicinity of the sculpture park, Storm King is an enchanting place that feels far from the beaten track, particularly the buzz of the Big Apple. Expect to see sculptures by Donald Judd, ‘playful’ pieces by Alexander Calder, and site-specific art by Richard Serra amongst many others.
Summer is the best time to visit as you can take your time to explore, and enjoy musical performances, yoga, poetry, and lectures related to landscape art. While winter here is cold, the park takes on an isolated veneer that makes it all the more beautiful.
We recommend the Storm King app for more info.
The Storm King Café has limited lunch options, however what they do have is delicious. We recommend grabbing an organic, locally produced salad or sandwich and sitting at the picnic tables, which overlook the park. You could follow the other guests and sit on the grass elsewhere in the park with your food or head into the local town for a more substantial meal after your visit.
