MOUNTAINVILLE, NY.- Storm King Art Center announced today the appointment of artists Heather Hart and Virginia Overton to its Board of Trustees. Both artists have presented projects as part of Storm King’s Outlooks exhibition series, which invites one emerging or mid-career artist to engage with the Art Center’s landscape and history and create a new, site-specific work installed on-site for a single season.

The Museum’s Chair Roberta Denning made the announcement, saying, “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Heather and Virginia to Storm King Art Center’s Board. Having artists’ voices on the board is critical to our efforts to ensure our board is representative of the community with whom we work and serve. I look forward to working with them and learning from the unique perspectives they will each bring to our discussions and decision-making.”

John P. Stern, Storm King Art Center’s President added, “Over Storm King’s 60-year history, we have worked with artists and supported some of their most ambitious works. It was a pleasure to collaborate with Heather in 2017 and Virginia in 2014 during their Outlooks exhibitions, each exceptionally presented within our landscape. I know they will serve as Trustees with the same creativity they have shown in their careers, enhanced by their deep interest in Storm King’s community, site, collection, and programs.”

On the occasion of the announcement, Heather Hart said, “It is an honor to join the board of Storm King Art Center and contribute to their legacy of encouraging the development of artists’ ideas and practices. My work focuses on communal participation, individual and collective identity, memory, and representation across multiple mediums. These are topics I’m also eager to engage with during my time as a Trustee."

Virginia Overton said, “Having shown work at Storm King and enjoyed many visits, I look forward to deepening my connection to the Art Center from this new vantage point. I hope to offer both my perspective as an artist and my passion for Storm King as it continues to evolve. I am honored to join Storm King’s Board of Trustees, and I do so with enthusiasm for its growth.”

As part of Storm King’s Board of Directors, Ms. Hart and Ms. Overton will each contribute their time and expertise alongside 17 other active board members.
