Storm King Art Center, Part 2

Yesterday I blogged about some of the sculptures inside the building and today I will show you some of what Storm King is most famous for, their huge outdoor works of art.

This one is right outside of the building and I was immediately reminded of The Bean in Chicago's Millennium Park and sure enough it is by the same artist, Anish Kapoor.  You see yourself and your surroundings upside down because of curve of the metal.

One of several Calder's stabiles

Here you can get a sense of the scale.

Free Ride Home by Kenneth Snelson has only three legs on the ground, yet is perfectly balanced.

It was a very hazy day, but the first sculpture by Menashe Kadishman in the foreground is one large rectangular cube with a smaller one suspended from it, amazing when you consider the size of it. It is fittingly titled "Suspended"

I love the way the color of this work is matched by the color of the tree. I think it's by Alexander Liberman.

Looks like a great trip! We haven't been there in years - time to go back (maybe in the spring...) Thanks for sharing all the great art!

The sculptures are amazing especially suspended. How they managed to tilt the large block and suspend the 2nd is very clever. Love the autumnal colours as well!
