Throwback: Storm King Art Center

It's January, it's freezing, it gets dark way too early - what better time to revisit our 2015 trek to Storm King Art Center on a gorgeous fall day?

Storm King Art Center is a sculpture park and open-air museum located on 500 acres in the Hudson Valley.  Open fields, rolling hills, and lightly wooded areas combined with fun and interesting art pieces made for a perfect place to walk around for a few hours.


This place was just incredible.  Large sculptures dot the landscape.  Even things that don't appear at first to be art actually are, like these "waves" of grass and hillside.

There are paved paths that wind their way around the park, but there are also some dirt paths, and you can always just make your own way across the wide open spaces.  A tram can drive you to see the major sites, but walking lets you see so much more, including some smaller pieces that are practically hidden until you are right on top of them.  Visitors can also rent bikes.

If you ever find yourself in this area of the Hudson Valley of New York, I highly recommend a visit to Storm King Art Center!


  1. This looks so wonderful. We have outside sculptures like this, but nothing that's like a park/museum. I'd want to take a picnic.

    1. They do have designated picnic areas. It was such a beautiful place to walk around!

  2. This looks so amazing, especially since I'm inside watching the cold, pouring rain right now, wishing I could escape to some place lovely like this. Thanks for sharing :)


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
