This month’s installment of I WANT TO GO TO CHELSEA: ART AROUND TOWN & BEYOND takes us to the Storm King Art Center, located in the Hudson Valley in Mountainville, NY.
We had been car sitting for a friend of ours, and along with the responsibility of remembering to move the car in order to not get a parking ticket, came the fun of having the car to get out of town on weekends! So on a very gorgeous spring day a few weeks ago, we hopped in the car and headed upstate. Destination? Storm King.
At the end of February, I took a short trip to Boston for an opening at a pop-up gallery that my boyfriend and some friends are a part of. It was a short trip to Beantown, which included a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts to see the Ellsworth Kelly show just days before it came down. The show, a collection of 30 wood sculptures that Kelly made over the course of his career, was elegantly stunning. Most of the sculptures were massive, solid pieces in an array of woods from birch to zebra, which felt like paintings in their own right.
