Maya Lin “Wave Field” Landscape Sculpture at Storm King

I love this — grassy hills shaped like waves, constructed in an abandoned gravel pit — featured in the New York Times today. (The Times site also has a video about Lin and this project.)

Storm King, about an hour north of NYC, is a 500-acre open-air museum of large (like, huge) modern sculpture, including work by Alexander Calder, David Smith, Henry Moore, Mark Di Suvero, Louise Nevelson, Nam Jun Paik, and Andy Goldsworthy. It’s an amazing day trip, and coupled with a visit to the DIA Beacon, would make for an extremely worthwhile non-urban art weekend.

Here is the sinuous stone wall that Goldsworthy designed for a wooded location on the property’s edge, which dips down through a pond, emerges on the other side, and peters out near the median of Route 87 North.
