of Peter Coffin’s Untitled (Bees Making Honey)(2012)
Saturdays at 12 pm and 1 pm
Storm King’s beekeeper leads small tours of the beehives that are installed as part of artist Peter Coffin’s project Untitled (Bees Making Honey) (2012). Participants will learn about the ways that honey bees make use of the sun’s light, and will take away a sample of local honey. Space is limited on each tour.
Family Tour with Wally McGuire
Celebrated educator Wally McGuire introduces children (and adults) to Storm King’s sculpture collection. McGuire’s tours enable visitors of all ages to find personal connections to sculpture and introduces concepts such as representation, abstraction, and stylization.
Artist and former LMCC resident Matthew Jensen will lead visitors on a meandering, story-filled search for the eleven Mark di Suvero sculptures installed throughout Governors Island. Throughout the walk, visitors will stop to discuss the di Suvero sculptures but also pause at other points of interest and hidden landmarks that relate to Jensen’s work and the discoveries he made during the residency, a seven-month period of search and documentation that yielded a collection of photographs, found objects, and historical ephemera.
