60th Anniversary Celebration

60th Anniversary Celebration & Benefit Auction

In lieu of our Annual Gala in New York City, we celebrated our 60-year commitment to art in nature from October 1 – 15 with free virtual programs, which featured Storm King artists, curators, and collaborators

Benefit Auction  

An enormous thanks to the artists and galleries who donated to our Benefit Auction on Artsy, which was a huge success.   

We are also grateful to our partner Christie’s, where donated works by Storm King artists were featured in the Postwar & Contemporary Day Sale on December 3. 100% of the hammer price was donated directly to Storm King.
