Oral History

Storm King Art Center’s Oral History Program includes interviews with artists and institutional leaders who have been essential to the evolution of Storm King since its founding in 1960. Participating artists consider the role Storm King has played in their careers, and reflect on their contributions to the Art Center’s collection. Oral histories with institutional leaders explore personal perspectives on Storm King’s growth, particularly as it has dovetailed with movements in contemporary art, museum education, and sustainability. Along with full interview transcripts, short films created from excerpts of each oral history are presented alongside selections from Storm King’s Archives, illuminating the development of artworks, exhibitions, programming, and landscape.

Support for Storm King Art Center’s Oral History Program is made possible by generous support from the Henry Luce Foundation.
