Land Acknowledgement
To be at Storm King Art Center is to experience the power of place. We acknowledge that this is Lenapehoking, the ancestral home of the Lenape, who were forced from this land through colonialism and genocide.

We honor the life held in its soil, reflected in its sky and waters. Grateful for this place which inspires our work, we recognize indigenous communities past, present, and future.

We humbly commit ourselves to the health and wholeness of this environment, to deepen and share the experience of a living, learning, and creating space for all.
