Storm King Arts Center is an open-air museum of large-scale sculptures set on 500-acres of sprawling landscape in Mountainville, NY.
Each piece at Storm King is displayed within a unique outdoor "room", and continuously changes seasonally and with time-of-day. Among Storm King's permanent collection are sculptures by contemporary artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Serra, David Smith, Alexander Calder, and many more. The year 2010 marks Storm King's 50th anniversary, and a "Storm King At 50: New Perspectives" exhibition is currently on display, in which five artists whose works are in the permanent collection were commissioned to create new sculptures in honor of the anniversary.
The Humanities Center invites you to join Professors John Muse, Joshua Schrier, and art-enthusiast Laura Gilroy (HC '11) on a Dialogues on Art trip to Storm King Arts Center. Come see some of the largest and most impressive sculptures by some of the most famous contemporary sculptures of our time.... in a beautiful Hudson Valley setting (fall foliage, snacks, dinner and discussion included!)
