Opus 40 is a large environmental immersive sculpture in Saugerties, New York, created by sculptor and quarryman Harvey Fite. It comprises a sprawling series of dry-stone ramps, pedestals and platforms covering 6.5 acres of a bluestone quarry. Following the sculpture park the group will explore the streets and shops of Woodstock, NY. Enjoy a beautiful spring day out of the city with other NYSN members and friends.
