Join us for a talk about site-specific artworks at Storm King Art Center. We will take an in-depth look at one work in the collection which was created specifically for the Art Center with natural materials found at Storm King.

This session focuses on David Brooks’ Permanent Field Observations. In 2018, Brooks created 30 bronze castings of ephemeral natural objects within Storm King’s woods; such as tree roots embracing rocks, or delicately intertwined branches-and permanently affixed them next to the subjects from which they were cast. Hannah des Cognets, Associate Educator, will lead the interactive conversation. Her background in sculpture and photography is the foundation for sharing new ways of seeing the world through making.

Storm King is a 500-acre outdoor museum where visitors experience large-scale sculpture under open sky. Since 1960, artists have been supported in this beautiful landscape.

This program will be presented through Zoom and there is limited space. Please register here starting October 1. Zoom links will be provided on the day of program.
