Storm King Art Center is an outdoor sculpture museum and is part of the Hudson Valley National Heritage Area. It is named after the nearby Storm King Mountain in Mountainville, New York.
It contains one the largest collection of modern outdoor sculptures in the USA.
The Art Center was founded in 1960 by Ralph E. Ogden, following his retirement from the Star Expansion Company. He began the center as a museum for Hudson River School paintings and showcased his collection of European sculptures around the main building.
The center evolved into a 500-acre, open-air sculpture museum, blending the large scale modern sculptures into the landscapes.
I visited Storm King on a field trip with my photography class in the Fall of 2015. The place is vast…you could walk around the grounds all day and still see only a fraction of the exhibits.
