Presented with Shandaken Projects
Initiated in 2013 by the Storm King Art Center, Wanderings & Wonderings invites visitors to engage with artists in creative and unexpected ways. Participating artists have created tours, maps, performances, poetry and movement workshops, new media, and deeply thoughtful conversations. Since 2015, Wanderings & Wonderings has been co-presented with Shandaken: Storm King, and features select alumni of Shandaken: Storm King and their collaborators.
