Re: Dream Sculpture Tour!

We eventually did make it to Storm King yesterday, but it started off on the wrong foot. We discovered their directions from the website were off coming from our direction. So, though we were only about 5 miles away, we ended up driving around 20. But we did eventually find it and spent nearly 4 hours walking around their expansive grounds. And when I say expansive, I mean it. The place is huge. Probably even too big. The park reads like the second draft of a great novel. All the pieces are in place, the tone is nearly set, but it just needs to be tightened up a bit.

One of the highlights was finding a show of sculpture by Chakaia Booker inside the main building. Fine work with a couple stunning pieces. Wish I had pics, but none allowed inside.
