Art Travelogues

Storm King

We spent the day up at the Storm King Art Center in upstate New York. Here are a few quick shots of what we saw.

C. took this one of one of the Calder stabiles:

Here are a couple more that I took, on of Calder’s “Black Dog”:

and this one by Mark Di Suvero:

I hope I can clean these up a little more, plus come up with some more selections, in the coming days. We shot about 400 pictures all together, so thank you for your patience.

If you’re ever in the downstate New York area, I cannot recommend Storm King highly enough. 500 beautifully landscaped acres surrounded by mountains, with around 100 outdoor sculpture installations ranging from the the monumental to the intimate. They take special care in integrating the works with the landscape, and with each other. For example, Richard Serra spent two years there working out a piece. His work, for example, sits alone in a wide expanse of 10 acres. Others are arranged in galleries, such as the collection of works by David Smith. Around a dozen are grouped together gallery-style, only the walls of the gallery are screens of trees and shrubs.
