Storm King Art Center
Widely celebrated as one of the world’s leading sculpture parks, Storm King Art Center has welcomed visitors from across the globe for over fifty years. Located only one hour north of New York City, in the lower Hudson Valley, its 500 acres of rolling hills, woodlands, and fields of native grasses and wildflowers provide the setting for a collection of more than 100 carefully sited sculptures created by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time.
Storm King announces two exhibitions opening May 19, 2018
Indicators: Artists on Climate Change will present work in a variety of media by over a dozen artists, including works newly created for the exhibition at Storm King. Illuminating the threats of a changing climate on a biological, personal, cultural, microcosmic, and macrocosmic scale, these artists will reveal how the acts of making and viewing art differ in both approach and effect from research, advocacy, and reportage.
Works in the exhibition will explore the impacts of a changing climate in ways that incorporate scientific, cultural, and aesthetic perspectives. Through a wide variety of works and artistic media, the exhibition will demonstrate how art can command attention for difficult subjects and spur creative thought, solutions, and ideas in ways that elude other means of communication and understanding.
