Founded in 1960, Storm King Art Center speckles 500 acres of landscaped hills, fields, and woodlands with postwar sculptures by international artists. The art center’s permanent collection showcases more than 100 abstract and figurative pieces made out of steel, aluminum, and other elements that range in size from welded I-beam structures to artistically littered pet rocks. Curators precisely nestle each work in the undulating Hudson Valley highlands, placing Alexander Calder’s Five Swords atop an emerald hill and Alice Aycock's Three-Fold Manifestation II under the tree line. An indoor complex shelters perishable works unable to withstand inclement weather alongside The View from Here: Storm King at Fifty, a temporary exhibition exploring the center’s history through archival documents, artists’ sketches, and framed photos of the founders holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Founded by the Marc and Livia Straus family, the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art strives to present interdisciplinary programs that enrich the community through many forms of contemporary art. Works from renowned and emerging contemporary artists share the Center's 12,000-square feet of exhibition space with a variety of long-term installations, several made by participants in the nonprofit’s artist in residence program. The HVCCA supplies artists with studio space, living quarters, and an extended stipend in order to foster creative work on-site and engage in an active discussion with visitors or talkative muses. Special events range from panel discussions and film screenings to a monthly family art day with lessons for parents and kids based on current exhibits. The Center has also organized special projects including the Banner Project, where artists mentor more than 300 youth in creating a large-scale installation, and the Public Tile Project, where 2,000 students design tiles that for a trail from Peekskill Train Station to the Center.

Established in 1791, the Albany Institute of History & Art has been chronicling artistic expression longer than the Louvre, the Smithsonian, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Visitors acquaint themselves with an eternally revolving set of exhibits, including Hajo: An Artist’s Journey, which documents Hans-Joachim Richard Christoph's work in package design incorporating the bold, stylized graphics of the Berlin school of graphic design. Visitors can sidle up to one of the permanent exhibitions, such as the panoramic landscape art of The Landscape that Defined America: The Hudson River School or the ornamentally preserved remains of Ancient Egypt, an exhibit that spotlights the Nile, the Egyptian concept of afterlife, and ways to reposition a mummy into a hip-hop mummy.
