Storm King Art Center gets a new run of installations that focus on climate change

Written by

Storm King Art Center in Orange County, New York has long been one of region’s go-to spots for outdoor art, and this year is no exception. Its latest show, “Indicators: Artists on Climate Change,” features works by 17 artists that deal with such climate-related issues as rising sea-levels, sustainability and the impact of global warming on culture and society. Although some of the projects are installed in Storm King’s indoor galleries, the majority of them are spread across Storm King’s 500 acres of rolling hills, woodlands and fields.

Notable among the projects are Jenny kindler’s “flock” of 100 colorful, birds’ eyes, fabricated like reflective street signs; Meg Webster’s solar powered garden; environmental collective Dear Climate’s ceremonial procession of enviro-prop flags; Allison Janae Hamilton’s monumental stack of tambourines (which references a hymn about the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926); and Mary Mattingly’s stand of palm trees imagining what Storm King might look like in the future after a temperature rise of 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit. You can check out images below, and visit the show through November 11.
