Storm King Art Center and Fall Foliage

The Storm King Art Center has a really special place in my heart since it's where my husband proposed to me (yes, I was very surprised!). This amazing sculpture garden is situated on 500-acres of rolling hills in the Hudson Valley. The collection includes the work of some extremely influential 20th century artists such as Calder, Smith, Serra, Lichtenstein, Lewitt, Moore and di Suvero. If you're a fan of the documentary Rivers & Tides, Storm King also showcases the installation work of Andy Goldsworthy.  
Goldsworthy is known for using natural objects such as twigs, leaves, wood, stone, and ice. His piece Storm King Wall is a wall of Field Stone that seamlessly weaves through the woodlands before ending at a small pond on the property. It's simple and it's brilliant. There's also the Lichtenstein Mermaid Hull. Serra's triangle jutting out of the grass. And the bright orange Calder pieces from the 1970s. 
Storm King is gorgeous in the spring and summer, but it is absolutely spectacular this time of year due to the fall foliage--which is kind of legendary in the Northeast. 
I visited Storm King this past weekend with Baby Otis, my best friend Nader and another man whom I adore, Richard. We all had a wonderful afternoon.
{If you are interested in visiting the Art Center this fall, please note that the grounds are closed from November 14th till March 31, 2011.}
Thanks Storm King! See you next Spring!
