Real Good for Free: Storm King Art Center, 8/27/09

Take the day off from work tomorrow and celebrate the the relationship between art and nature.

The Storm King Art Center in Mountainville is an amazing outdoor sculpture garden that stretches on and on for 500 acres. It’s pretty much impossible to see everything in just one day of walking around the grounds – although there are regularly scheduled tram tours if you want to give your legs a bit of a rest.

New this summer is Maya Lin’s massive, rolling “Storm King Wavefield,” a mesmerizing earthwork.

If you haven’t been to Storm King yet this summer, tomorrow (Thursday, August 27) is a great day to go for a visit – admission is free all day long. One day only. Bring a picnic and make a day of it.

    I wish I could take your excellent advice about free admission today; but this place is worth the price of admission any day. Went there for the first time on Aug. 15 for my birthday party/picnic with friends, and it was a great experience. Storm King Wavefield enfolds you in its own really powerful atmosphere.
