Join us for a guided visit to the Storm King Art Center on Thursday, November 3rd. In addition to having the opportunity to explore the vast grounds of Storm King, this will be the last chance to see the exhibition of works by internationally acclaimed artist Wangechi Mutu.
Storm King Art Center is a 500-acre outdoor museum located just over an hour from New Canaan in New York’s Hudson Valley, where visitors experience large-scale sculpture and site-specific commissions under open sky. The park features permanent installations of sculpture by over 150 artists. With the changing exhibitions, new installations and foliage in different seasons, there are new discoveries with every visit.
Wangechi Mutu’s exhibition highlights her current practice in earth and bronze sculptures, which populate Storm King’s landscape. Mutu’s work reverently engages with the natural world to address ideas of mythology, ritual, and historical violence and its impact on women, their inextricable relationships with our ecosystems. Mutu rejects hierarchies among living things, whether human, plant, or animal. The artist molds her ideas and materials to assert the existence and cultural relevance of ancient original myths, fables, and histories derived from African art.
$140 for members, $155 for non-members. Includes guided group tour with a Storm King curator, a bag/picnic lunch, and round-trip coach transportation to Storm King from the Carriage Barn. Space is limited.
