Oh My, Oh My, What Spectacular Art!
Surrounded by the Hudson Valley and views of the Catskill Mountains on 300 acres, one of the biggest draws to this internationally renowned arts institution is its 120-acre sculpture park. Known as The Fields, families, dog walkers, art enthusiasts, and even cross country skiers in winter wander unguided through rolling farmland, wetlands, and wooded areas while encountering an intriguing array of nearly 100 permanent and temporary sculptures by prominent contemporary and modern artists such as Richard Nonas, Beverly Pepper, Robert Grosvenor, Rob Fischer, and Philip Grausman. Also within the park lies Architecture Omi, which explores the interplay of architecture and sculpture through the creation of imposing physical structures.
