The Municipal Art Society is hosting a virtual tour of one of the largest collections of contemporary outdoor sculpture, Storm King Arts Center. It is a perfect destination to learn about art in communication with nature, free from confining gallery walls. The collection was started by Ralph Ogden and opened to the public in 1960. Artists include Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Louise Nevelson, David Smith, Mark di Suvero, Richard Serra, as well as artists specifically focusing on nature in their practice, like Andy Goldsworthy and Maya Lin. During this virtual tour with art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo we will discuss this institution’s history, the landscape design and architecture, as well as key art works in the collection.
