Storm King Art Center is a museum that celebrates the relationship between outdoor sculpture and nature. It is the internationally acknowledged leader in collecting, exhibiting and preserving large-scale modern sculpture outdoors. Its five hundred acres of landscaped lawns, fields and woodlands provides a spectacular setting for experiencing the work of renowned artists, many of whom have created site specific works for this natural landscape.
Founded in 1960 by Ralph E. Ogden as a museum for Hudson Valley painters, Storm King soon expanded into a major sculpture venue with the acquisition of works from the estate of David Smith. The collection included pieces by modern masters and more recently has been joined by large-scale sculptures by contemporary sculptors.
Storm King is located approximately an hour from New York City in the Hudson Valley and serves a broad range of audiences: school groups to art cognoscenti and collectors from New York City around the Unites States and the world. It is open to the public from April 1 through mid-November.
Storm King Art Center is governed by a small and dedicated Board of Trustees, and led by the President and the Director/Curator.
Storm King Art Center is an equal opportunity employer M/F/D/V.
