This huge sculpture garden about 300 hectors almost a square mile tucked in to the rolling hills of the Hudson valley really with the Schunnemunk Mountain Mountainville Conservancy as its backdrop. Very special Art in a very unique atmosphere. The light dancing on the sculptures and the interaction of clouds rain and sun really makes this place a sort of concert for the eyes of nature and art really interacting very nice. The name Storm King Art Center comes from the mountian with the same name Storm King on the Hudson Rver. It was a famus landmark

Storm King within its beautiful landscape has something like 130 huge sculpture by some of the best know artist of the 20th century.
