My Visit to Storm King Art Center

Work by Roy Lichtenstein in the distance
Storm King Art Center is in New Windsor, New York which is in the lower Hudson Valley about an hour and a half (by car) away form New York City. I visited Storm King for the first time last weekend and I absolutely loved it.

The day we decided to go happened to be the most beautiful fall day. The weather was a little cool but great for having a picnic outdoors. The sun was shining bright and the leaves were in their Fall prime. It was really a perfect day. I felt like I was in a beautiful painting of an ideal autumn. 

A bit about Storm King
     According to their website, Storm King Art Center is a 500 acre sculpture park with over 100 sculptures by acclaimed artists. The landscape is a beautiful mix of hills, meadows, ponds, vistas. and trees. Here is a link to a bit more about the history of Storm King if you're curious.

Below are some photos I took on that beautiful day. I love how the sculptures fit in so well with their surroundings. The art work isn't disrupting the scene instead it's part of it. As you can tell, I have nothing but praise for Storm King. I also just love Fall.

This was such a great trip! I would like to see Storm King Art Center during the spring time.
