Join MAD for an art-filled getaway to the Hudson Valley this fall. We have planned an exciting itinerary that includes an exclusive visit to the studio of noted artist Jacob Hashimoto, a private tour of newly opened Magazzino Italian Art, and a docent-led tour of Storm King Art Center.

8:00 am: Guest arrival at the Museum

Guests will meet at MAD at 2 Columbus Circle. 

8:15 am: Prompt departure from the Museum

Guests will travel via private motor coach.

Jacob Hashimoto

Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, Colorado, and is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Using sculpture, painting, and installation, he creates complex worlds from a range of modular components, including bamboo-and-paper kites, model boats, and Astroturf-covered blocks. Hashimoto has been featured in solo institutional exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome; Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art, Turku, Finland; Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among many others.

Magazzino Italian Art

Co-founders Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu will guide the group through the twenty-thousand-square-foot warehouse art space, which is devoted to postwar and contemporary Italian art from the Olnick Spanu Collection. The current exhibition, Arte Povera: From the Olnick Spanu Collection,presents a comprehensive panorama of the artistic practice of twelve artists associated with the Arte Povera movement: Giovanni Anselmo, Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Giulio Paolini, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, Michelangelo Pistoletto, and Gilberto Zorio.

Lunch at a local restaurant 

Storm King Art Center

Set on over five hundred acres of fields, hills, and woodlands, Storm King Art Center is a well-loved destination for enthusiasts of art and nature. This is an opportunity to stroll among a breathtaking collection of large-scale sculptures by acclaimed artists such as Alexander Calder, Andy Goldsworthy, Roy Lichtenstein, Maya Lin, Louise Nevelson, and Isamu Noguchi.
