Unison Sculpture Park, New Paltz

Outside the hustle bustle of town on the road leading up to the mountains of New Paltz I always took a second glance passing by an artsy looking place. One particular day I decided to follow stop there and see what it was all about. That place was Unison Sculpture Park [68 Mountain Rest Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561], and I’m so glad I paid it a visit. There was a clearly defined path through the woods looping you around. The pieces were all so unique and interesting. I loved how certain artists used the natural surrounds to enhance their work.
