Storm King Art Center and Bannerman Castle - Oct 2011


A pretty perfect day in Storm King (which sounds like a WoW boss fight but is also a town on the Hudson river) (photos can be found here). Kayaked on lovely water in crisp perfect fall weather to see Bannerman castle framed by changing leaves. Had lunch at the perfectly Napa style burger joint Woody's All Natural. Made it to the installation art museum Storm King Art Center, which was a magical valley full of monumental art. Landscape art makes sense, and you fullly appreciate how diminishing it is to put these pieces in a museum or even a college campus (it seems like every college campus has a Calder somewhere, but they felt more at home here).
