Storm King Art Center
digs deep into its roots for its upcoming exhibit. Known for its massive outdoor sculptures, the 500-acre park aims to connect art with nature. Ranging from a multimedia project to outdoor signage and sculptures, its newest installations highlight the troubling and complex effects of climate change. Many outdoor works utilize the sweeping space, such as David Brooks's Permanent Field Observations. Brooks made bronze versions of naturally occurring objects throughout the park, such as roots and acorns, and affixed them where he originally found them. His art will remain there indefinitely to mark the present moment in the climate, and visitors can look for them in a scavenger hunt-like fashion. Fifteen artists will exhibit one-of-a-kind works in "Indicators: Artists on Climate Change," which opens at Storm King Art Center on May 19.

    The leaves are turning brilliant hues of orange and red. The kids (and the kids at heart) are contemplating their costumes. And all of us are trying to figure out if we need a sweater under that light jacket. It can only mean one thing: Mid-October is upon us. Here’s some stuff to do.
