STORM KING ART CENTER
The “Storm King Art Center” is an open air museum. The 500 acred park is filled with fields, hills landscapes, and sculptures, making it not only a park, but a museum. Just by looking at pictures and videos of the place I feel enhanced by the beauty of it. I don't know much about art, but i can still see the beauty of everything in the park, you dont have to be an expert to realize how amazing the work is. Although it is an hour away from the city, they say its like being in a whole 'nother country, and a perfect escape from the hustle of NYC. Rolling acres of beautiful fields, small forests and hills is what it is, then it is dotted with amazing modern sculptures and sculptures that are made of natural earth and stone. More than 100 different sculptures are sited in different parts of the park so perfectly, that you'd think that everything was ment to be there. Not only the sculptures are things to look at, but so is the area, where everything is placed, and what it's placed on, the whole thing is an art work, not just the sculptures. While I was learning about the Storm king I found out that Maya Lin was one of the many famous architects that had also worked on the park. Her work the “Wave Field” consists of seven rows of undulating hills that are shaped like ocean waves crateld in a gentle alley. It gives the illusion of ocean waves. I would have to say that it is one of my favorites work that Maya Lin has done. And maybe, just maybe the best piece in the museums, and that is just by looking at pictures and watching videos, I might change my mind when I actually go there one day. "Storm King Art Center."
