Storm King Art Center

It's worth visiting Storm King Art Center just to amble alongside Andy Goldsworthy's landscape-responsive Five Men, Seventeen Days, Fifteen Boulders, One Wall, a fieldstone sculpture meandering between trees and through fields before sloping into a pond. The sculpture park's 500 acres are studded with over 100 similar delights, from the muscular I-beams of Mark DiSuvero to the undulating wave field of Maya Lin to Roy Lichenstein's whimsical Mermaid. This summer, Storm King features two special exhibitions: "Water Sources," a collection of Lynda Benglis's outdoor water fountains, and a,b,moon,d, a site-specific work by Luke Stettner that employs the archeological dig as a large-scale drawing tool to create oversize glyphs in the soil. In recent years, Storm King has pumped up its events programming, offering yoga, artist's talks, and concerts. Lee Ranaldo plays August 9. Stormking.org
