FAUX STONEHENGE MADE OF FOAM

The Amazing Storm King

Just one hour north of NYC you’ll find Storm King  Art Center. Maya Lin’s Wave Field permanent land installation opened there in April 2009. It’s breathtaking to see gigantic sculptures by world class artists situated with earth and sky on 500 pristine acres of woodlands, meadows, and mountain views.
