Storm King Art Center

We rented a metallic MINI Cooper and drove up to the Storm King Art Center in the Hudson Valley. We had bought a GPS, but still got lost. It took us more than 3 hours to get there (how pathetic!) Chai was so nervous in the car and kept wining... everyone was in a bad mood. However, it was worth it. It is an amazing place! There were Calder, Noguchi, Maya Lin... so many great sculptors' pieces were presented in a massive-500-acres land!


It looks like a death mask, doesn't it? Surprisingly, this piece was done by Nam June Paik and it is called, "Waiting for UFO." Since those faces were on the ground it is easy to be missed. What an incredible place... I highly recommend you to visit! このデスマスクのような作品は、驚くことにナムジュンパイクの作品で「UFOを待って」という作品。地に埋めつけられているので、遠くからは気づかない作品です。迷わなければニューヨーク市内から約1時間半で行けるこのアートセンター、おすすめです!
