After having spent the week in New York City, and yesterday at the beach, it was time to see some art in nature! Storm King Art Center is an outdoor sculpture park spanning 500 acres in Mountainville, New York (about a one-hour drive north from Manhattan). As soon as we arrived, we realized that we’d have to walk a lot (and quickly) in order to see everything, so we rented bikes! Students spent the afternoon cruising from sculpture to sculpture throughout the park, all the while taking in the lush, green countryside. We would highly recommend Storm King Art Center to anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for some peaceful time with nature and art.
When we returned from Storm King we had a quick dinner, and then it was off to the movies. Ant-Man and the Wasp was the movie of choice and it was a big hit! There was lots of audible laughter throughout the movie. The students recommend this movie–just make sure you stay for all the credits!
Tomorrow it’s back to Christie’s Education and then a busy afternoon of multiple museum visits and Central Park!
