H. Peter Stern Concerts present Western and Indian classical performances, inspired by the interests of Storm King’s Honorary Chair and Founding President. Other performances feature such diverse genres as indie rock, experimental guitar, contemporary classical music, African drumming, dance, and theater.


Initiated in 2013 by the 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 Nicholas Weist, Director of Shandaken Projects, and features select alumnae residents and their collaborators.

Storm King’s public programs invite contemplative, creative, and joyful participation from a diverse cross section of visitors. Artists, scholars, teachers, students, families, community organizers, and other cultural organizations are critical partners in both creating and participating in programming. We offer a number of public programs throughout the season, as well as in the off-season.
