Storm King

This post is long overdue and it's awful of me to keep these photographs hidden away-- my apologies! NYC summers are the worse: humidity and just too many people in such small quarters. In search for some fresh air and open space, my friends and I took a trip to Storm King Art Center, a five hundred acre museum of landscaped lawns, fields, and woodlands that serves as a site for postwar sculptures by artists such as David Smith, Isamu Noguchi, Alexander Liberman, and Richard Serra. You see the fusion of sculpture and mother nature at its best, as light and weather changes (or integrates into) the physical aspects of each art piece. It felt so surreal; I've never experienced sculpture at such aptitude where a man-made object can occupy a massive space with such ease.
