Rockefeller State Park Preserve Art Gallery inside The Visitor Center
The Visitor Center in the Preserve has a small art gallery that frequently displays paintings and photographic art works of local artists. You can visit the gallery from 9:00am to 4:30pm, daily. The exhibits of the park’s gallery are curated by Audrey Leeds.
The Preserve is a wonderful environment for photography and filming. The Art Gallery’s annual exhibition SNAP! is an opportunity to exhibit your Preserve photographs. Permits are required for professional photographers (including those photographing families/children), film makers, and college student film projects.
Past Art Gallery exhibits include Glorious Hudson Valley Visions, Mapping Symmetries, Mammals and Migratory Art, Wildlife, and Theatre of Nature.
Rockefeller State Park Restaurant
Looking for a good meal around the park after venturing the nature all day long? Visit Blue Hill At Stone Barns. Bringing the concept of farm-to-table, the farm at Blue Hill At Stone Bars is truly magnificent with historical buildings. Outdoor dining is available and the decor is elegant and classic.
The staff is super polite and friendly, and the food is served in a special picnic style, bread, appetizers, salad and dessert. All the ingredients are fresh with the best quality, especially the veggies. The food is overall delicious; you’d be especially surprised by the scrumptious miso spray for the bread and the jelly milk! Visit the web for a complete list of their amazing menus.
