New Windsor, NY
About an hour north of the George Washington Bridge, near the mountain that serves as its mega-apocalyptic namesake, Storm King Art Center is dotted with monuments and reminders of virtually every post-WWII name in large-scale, site-specific sculptural work. The landscape’s 500-acres are fittingly dramatic and alive — woodlands and farm fields where structural pieces share quarters with red fox, wild turkey, groundhogs, red-tail hawks, turtles.
Storm King’s sharing a peek at a pair of their special exhibitions on view this year with the Gallery at Ace Hotel New York this month — Zhang Huan: Evoking Tradition and Outlooks: Virginia Overton — plus free admission to the center for guests.
