On friday Sept 11th, the Byrdcliffe group visited Opus 40 in Saugerties, NY. This amazing place has such a presence with its immense stone structures. Harvey Fite began work on his masonry masterpiece in 1938 and spent the next 37 years creating his dream. The sculpture park is a series of dry-stone ramps, terraces, and platforms in an old bluestone quarry. All the earth work is beautifully stacked and shaped. It is like a rocky playground with so many surfaces and crevices to explore. Everyone enjoyed it at their own pace, adventuring all around the grounds, and at one point collected at the monolith, the park’s 9 ton epicenter, for a group picture. We admired the view of Overlook Mountain, knowing we plan to hike up to the fire tower in the morning. It was beautiful day, spent with great people, in a magical place. Many photos to see below!
