Now including Mark di Suvero's E=MC2, Rashid Johnson's Stacked Heads, and Sarah Sze's Fallen Sky!

E=MC2 (1996–97)
Installed at Storm King on loan in 2019, marking the sculpture's first presentation in the US, di Suvero's E=MC is the tallest sculpture at Storm King at nearly 100 feet and can be seen from the nearby NY State Thruway. Recently gifted by the artist to Storm King, E=MC2 joins five iconic examples of di Suvero’s large-scale outdoor sculptures in Storm King’s permanent collection and is the first to represent the artist’s production in the 1990s.
Stacked Heads (2019) 
Now on view in the museum’s North Woods, the imposing busts of Johnson’s Stacked Heads, balanced one atop the other, are constructed from bronze coated in a glossy black patina. The sculpture’s surface is textured with incised marks, reminiscent of Johnson’s distinctive, sometimes violent, manipulation of softer and more malleable materials such as shea butter, black soap, and wax.

Fallen Sky (2020–21)
On view from Storm King's 2021 season, Sze's permanent, site-specific commission Fallen Sky consists of a 36-foot-diameter spherical cavity emerging from the earth. Made up of 132 individual elements of mirror-polished stainless steel nestled into Storm King's Museum Hill, the sculpture both reflects and is embedded within the landscape. While looking at Fallen Sky and the natural environment surrounding it, viewers simultaneously experience what is above: passing clouds and birds and variations in light, weather, season, and time of day.

Please come prepared to spend the day walking and standing outdoors, check the weather forecast, and wear comfortable walking shoes. The Art Center’s grounds comprise varied terrain including rolling meadows, hills, wooded areas, and paved and gravel paths.
