This sculpture park was intended to house the works of the designer, but the setting itself became the artist's masterwork. It is possible to visit by appointment on non-open days.

Stunning rock work

This site is truly amazing. 38 years in the making, it's almost impossible to get your mind around what it must have taken, not just physically but mentally to do this much work. This is a great side trip when in the area. There's a museum of the tools used by the quarry men with lots of various instruments used... More

We visited Opus 40 in the height of the fall colors of 2014 and we still talk about it as being one of the very highest points and most wonderful days of our trip so I decided to share about it. We have been travelling in an RV for 14 months and this was awe inspiring, peaceful, meditative, and just... More

This is a good place to visit if you're not looking to be entertained but rather to appreciate. We walked around for an hour in quiet appreciation of the site, the painstaking work and unique artistry behind it, and the surrounding natural beauty. It's more of a thoughtful site than a stimulating site, so just make sure you're in the... More

While sight-seeing we noticed signs for this sculpture exhibit and decided to check it out. Breath-taking! Definitely make time to go there if in the area.

My husband and I visited Opus 40 in early June. We left feeling mesmerized, inspired, and awestruck, though we struggled to explain why in words. The sheer volume of the work is staggering, and I was left wondering what my life's work might look like if I had the persistence and vision of this artist, which of course few of... More

Enjoyed the exploring of the multilevel structure. Amazed at the brilliance and s the kill involved in creating this work of art. Beautiful scenery, serene, definitely worth the two hour drive. Extra bonus found in the town of Saugerties with the art cars, spring and summer 2015.

Both my husband and I kept commenting on the beauty, strength and inspiration put into this work. It gives those back to anyone who visits. We could not believe we had never heard of this incredible work... Take the time to visit this place and the surrounding area. Enchanting!!!

From the website we were not expecting much, but once we got on the property there was a magical transformation in our attitudes. The brief movie offered some background info. Then while walking in and around the quarry, the magic happened--peace and tranquility and fun--like we were young again! We had packed a picnic lunch so enjoyed that at the... More

The sculpture was very neat to walk on and explore. The grounds themselves were disappointing. Definitely not worth the $10.00 a person admission. I realize that it's a donation for upkeep, but still way too much. Ladies, prepare yourselves. No restroom, just porta-potties. Also make sure to use insect repellent. A guest using a picnic table near the potties, had... More
