Storm King Art Center See if you can find this the next time you visit Storm King Art Center:
This piece of sculpture art by Isamu Noguchi, titled "Momo Taro," is available for the interaction of visitors, who are invited to touch, enter, sit, and fully blend with the work. Noguchi’s flat bench provides a welcome site for rest and contemplation. The “center” of the piece - the hollowed-out granite “peach pit” - serves as a peaceful retreat. Even on the hottest summer days, this interior remains cool. Noguchi expressed his wish that visitors, especially children, would not only climb into the cavity but also sing inside it and enjoy its special aural resonance. The reflective “mirror,” a highly polished surface, is angled to fully reflect the sun in summer. Beaconites get a Discount Deal on admission, so see here for details!

A Little Beacon Space
291 Main Street
A Little Beacon Blog's Space, located in the heart of Beacon's historic business district, is perfect for company meetings, gatherings, workshops, and other creations you have planned. We just got our second review!
"Renting this space was perfect for our small, creative company retreat. We had everything we needed to have a productive day, and the expectations were clearly laid out ahead of time in a transparent way. There's great parking (not always a given in Beacon), and you're in the thick of things when it comes to walking around after your event is over. 5/5, will retreat there again." - Alex Panagiotopoulos, Kingston Creative
