King Art center, named for its proximity to Storm King Mountain, is more of a sculpture landscape as opposed to a sculpture garden. Founded by Ralph Ogden in 1960, it is about 1 hour from New York City located in the lower Hudson Valley. Over 100 sculptures, from acclaimed artists, sit on 500 acres of pristine landscape. Some are monumental in size but work so beautifully with the nature that surrounds them. The original residence has been converted to the main museum building. Well worth setting a day aside and walking.
