storm king and the art of maya lin

I've been a huge fan of the work of artist and architect, Maya Lin. So I was thrilled to learn of her current exhibit at the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY. It had been a few years since I visited Storm King and was wanting a great excuse to return. It is an awe-inspiring place – 500 acres of rolling hills and wooded areas of the Hudson Highlands dotted throughout with beautiful sculpture and environmental art. The late-summer weather was also perfect for a day-long stroll through so much beauty and imagination.



Below are images of the Maya Lin exhibit inside the Storm King museum building entitled Bodies of Water. The exhibit showcases the artist's interest in water and it's various states. An interesting statement is also being made about the effect of industrial pollution on the environment. This was a gorgeous exhibit!



Below are more images of some of my favourites from Storm King's permanent collection as well as the surrounding landscape...
