Field Trip to Storm King

  • Storm King Art Center 1 Museum Road New Windsor, NY, 12553 United States (map)

Here's what you need to know:

Storm King:

A 500 acre park in the lower Hudson Valley (an hour north of Manhattan) containing more than 100 sculptures created by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time 


Special Exhibitions:

David Smith: The White Sculptures

David Smith (1906 – 1965) was an American Abstract Expressionist sculptor and painter, best known for creating large steel abstract geometric sculptures. David Smith: The White Sculptures is the first exhibition to critically consider the use of the color white within his work. When installed in the landscape of Storm King, the flat white planes of the large sculptures appear as dramatic cutouts.

Outlooks: Heather Heart

This exhibition comprises an interactive sculptural domestic rooftop, which is enlivened by music, workshops, movement, spoken word, poetry and other events throughout the exhibition. Underneath the rooftop, visitors can listen to round-table discussions that Hart recorded on topics surrounding the histories of slavery and migration in the Storm King region.
