Summer is officially here, and the Storm King Art Center marked the occasion in style with their Summer Solstice event.


Guests gathered on Saturday, June 20, at the sculpture park for a private tour of the 500-acre grounds, featuring more than 100 large-scale installations.


The evening began with a cocktail reception, followed by a farm-to-table dinner. The special menu was created by Peter Hoffman of New York’s Back Forty and Shelley Borris of Fresh Company, Garrison. The inspiration came from exhibition artists Lynda Benglis and Luke Stettner, and was a celebration of color.


Guests had the opportunity to explore the towering sculptures, followed by an evening of dancing. Music was provided by Pete Francis of Dispatch featuring The Dragon Crest Collective.
