Our ‘Six Bands, Six Genres, Six Sculptures’ event is going ahead as scheduled for today, Saturday, June 11. This event is included with regular Storm King admission. Storm King Members receive free admission.

In an exciting, first-time collaboration, Storm King Art Center is partnering with Orange County’s (NY) Ferry Godmother Productions to present a fun-filled day of art and music.

Experience Storm King’s grounds and sculpture through music, with six bands playing six different genres of music at six locations throughout the Art Center’s 500-acre site. Musicians will perform country, swing, jazz, world, oldies, and rock.

In addition to the musical performances, a live, teaching band will lead educational workshops throughout the day at the festival’s main ‘marquee’ tent.
