Ellen Grenley, Associate Director of Education and Public Programs, Storm King Art Center
Art, Nature, and People
Storm King Art Center is a 500-acre outdoor museum located in New York’s Hudson Valley, where visitors experience large-scale sculpture and site-specific commissions under open sky. Since 1960, Storm King has been dedicated to stewarding the hills, meadows, and forests of its site and surrounding landscape.
Storm King was originally envisioned as a museum devoted to Hudson River School painting. By 1961 its founders were committed to modern sculpture. Early purchases were sited directly outside the Museum Building as part of a formal garden scheme. With the 1966 purchase of 13 works from the estate of sculptor David Smith, Storm King began to place sculpture directly in the landscape. Storm King continues to grow and evolve, and is among the world’s leading sculpture parks.
Ellen Grenley will speak about how the Art Center nurtures a vibrant bond between art, nature, and people, and how it aims to be a place of limitless discovery. Grenley has nearly 15 years of experience working in modern and contemporary art museums. Previously she worked as an educator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She holds an MEd from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a BA from Bowdoin College.
