About the Art Park

Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, which consists of 104 acres of land and over four miles of hiking trails, is one of the first outdoor sculpture parks in this country. The park sits atop a breathtaking rural landscape within upstate New York's hills, meadows, and forests. Tucked into these elements of natural beauty are Stone Quarry's heart: original, one-of-a-kind works of art.

Inspired by the relationship between art and nature, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park seeks to educate and engage the public through exhibitions, collection, interpretation, and community outreach programs in the arts.

photoSet among 104 acres of conserved land and groomed trails, the Art Park is dedicated to providing a unique environment for the showcasing of art by emerging and established artists, in natural and gallery settings. Sculptors have been joined by visual and performing artists from many cultural traditions. Painters, potters, dancers, musicians, weavers, and writers from around the World have all found inspiration in the Art Park's unique natural setting.

Public programs and educational outreach build off of this cultural richness. School visits and college classes punctuate a busy schedule of exhibitions, lecture-demonstrations, workshops and classes. Special events have included the "Art in the Sky" kite festival, the Society for New Music's concert series, the Syracuse Ceramic Guild's Pottery Fair, as well as "Talons! A Birds of Prey Experience".

The Art Park is open to the public 365 days a year, from dawn until dusk. Our offices in the Artist Lodge are open Monday through Friday, 9:30am – 4:30pm. Suggested donation for nonmembers is $5 per car. We are located one mile east of Cazenovia, off of U.S. Route 20 — about 25 miles southeast of Syracuse, NY.
