We picked a beautiful sunny, cool day in October to visit Art Omi and found it very easily (several road signs were helpful) since we had never visited Ghent, NY before. We were pleasantly surprised to find out there is no admission fee (we did give a donation later) and so we set out to explore the sculptures scattered throughout... More

Summer experience in August. Open house dance review is worth experiencing for an unusual and artistic view of dance and form.

This was my "big art" day in honor of it being "burn night" (if you know Burning Man, you know what I am talking about). I truly loved the wander/hike through the property/park EXCEPT I was SWARMED by midgies (tsetse flies, sand fleas - you know - those little things that the bite comes up a few days later)....it was...

We didn't have time to fully explore the park, so didn't see everything. It is quite large, with sculptures placed far apartment and there are a lot of paths to explore. Would love to go back and spend more time, and check out some of the programs they have to offer. You might want to go early if it is... More

Congratulations to the founders of OMI Arts Center and Fields of Sculpture. The permanent installations and changeable exhibitions are top notch and add to the cultural offerings in the Hudson River Valley. Works by established and lesser known sculptors are installed on the rolling landscape and in the woods which adds to the flavor of the park. Additionally it is... More

Awesome to find OMI out here nestled amongst the hills. Enjoyed walking through the fields and exploring the different exhibits as well as the artists studios and many times they will also have an artist or author speaking in the visitor center/cafe.

Whenever I visit a cousin in Old Chatham, we usually stop by The Fields at OMI to see the outdoor sculptures scattered about some 90 acres. On the visit in June, we had a mutual friend from high school along for the ride. We were happy to see that the Visitor Center had added a cafe. The barn houses artist... More

I have mixed feeling about the fields sculpture park. It's an amazing experience to walk through acres and come up sculpture out in the open, hidden behind trees, and placed in the ground. Eventhough you know a new sculpture is around the bend, its still an odd experience to come upon in in the woods. That part of the experience... More

Great art, beautiful scenery. There is a new cafe in the visitor's centre, which is great after a spring or fall stroll through the sculpture fields. For an extra, visit the artists' studios at the nearby barn complex.

We have visited the open studio days at Art Omi several times over the years and always found them to be satisfying and intriguing. This September we attended a contemporary dance performance for all the dancers in residence. It was truly superb. Omi has also opened a visitors center with a restaurant, offering dishes from local Columbia Country produce, and... More
