Council Event: Tour of Martin Puryear’s Lookout and Process and Scale
10:30am — 12:00pm
Join us for a tour of preeminent sculptor Martin Puryear’s Lookout and of the accompanying exhibition Process and Scale, led by Storm King President John Stern and Puryear Commission Co-Curator Amy S. Weisser. Lookout is Storm King’s newest site-specific commission for the permanent collection and joins a historic series including works by Andy Goldsworthy, Maya Lin, Isamu Noguchi, and Sarah Sze, among others. Sited at a clearing at the edge of the Art Center’s North Woods, Lookout marks the artist’s first use of brick as a material, recognizing brickmaking as a once-primary industry in the Hudson Valley and referencing the vernacular structures that dot the local landscape.
We will begin the tour with refreshments by the Museum Building before touring Lookout and Process and Scale.
Open to Council Members. To reserve your spot for the tour, please email email@example.com by Friday, October 13.

Join us after the Puryear tour for a hard hat tour of the Capital Project construction progress. Space is limited. Details will be sent to confirmed guests.
Please let us know your access needs and how we can best support you. The walk to Lookout takes 10 minutes, and the paths are unpaved and some parts are steep. Cart service will be available upon request.
The Capital Project tour will lead guests across varied terrain on an active construction site, including unpaved paths, large gravel, and mud. Guests will be transported from each site via golf carts (wheelchair-accessible cart service will be available upon request). Guests are required to follow safety precautions, including wearing protective gear supplied by Storm King, hard-soled shoes, and long pants.
