Dear Friends,

Since 1960, Storm King Art Center has played an important role in stewarding its surrounding Hudson Valley environment, most notably in the reclamation of its site following the construction of the New York State Thruway in the 1950s. More than fifty years after its founding, the Art Center’s landscape has grown to 500 acres—over decades of careful planning and cultivation—becoming a stunning setting for exhibiting sculpture. Today, rolling hills, lush meadows of native grasses and wildflowers, and wooded forests, all framed by distant mountains and big, open sky, welcome Storm King’s visitors each year.

Your support is critical to helping us continue to care for the Art Center’s landscape and collection. As we approach the start of the 2018 season, we ask you to make a special gift to Storm King’s Annual Fund.

Our efforts to protect the land are complemented by the exciting exhibition and dynamic series of programs offered each year. The 2018 season will include the major exhibition Indicators: Artists on Climate Change, featuring more than fifteen artists, including Maya Lin, Ellie Ga, Mark Dion, and David Brooks, whose works will help highlight and raise awareness of the effects of climate change. We will also be presenting the sixth iteration of our emerging artists exhibition series, Outlooks, with a new site-specific installation by artist Elaine Cameron-Weir. Both exhibitions will be accompanied by a dynamic roster of programming and special events throughout the season.

Contributions to the Annual Fund make possible Storm King’s environmental initiatives, exhibitions, and a robust education program that includes vital outreach to our local communities and public schools. Whatever you decide to donate, your contribution will be greatly appreciated and will have a significant impact on all of our work to maintain the Art Center for you and future generations.

We greatly appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you often this year!
