Storm King Art Center - October 2014

November 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Storm King Art Center is a sculpture park located approximately one hour north of New York City. It has more than 100 sculptures on display, which are spread throughout its 500 acres of land. Storm King is divided into 4 areas: the North Woods, the Meadows, Museum Hill, and the South Fields. This was my first visit to Storm King, and since I would only have a few hours to spend on the grounds, I decided to spend that time walking the South Fields.


Looking at the map of the art center, the South Fields are almost the size of the other three areas combined. I choose the South Fields because it contained the giant steel sculptures that I had previously seen in photos, so I wanted to see them first hand. I timed my visit for autumn because I wanted to incorporate the the colors of the changing leaves in my photos. Once autumn came, I kept an eye on the weather forecasts because I wanted to make sure that I picked a day that not only had blue skies, but also had some clouds mixed in. I'm of the opinion that while blue skies are definitely better than grey skies, clouds can add another dimension to the photos. Below are a selection of photos from my visit, and I'll let you be the judge.



So, what do you think? If you liked what you saw, please visit my Storm King Art Center gallery page to see more photos from my visit. As always, thanks for stopping by.
