Opus 40 located in Saugerties, NY
I have recently been invited to work with The Stone Foundation to help restore Opus 40 located in Saugerties NY. I will spend three days helping to assist a team of master stonemasons.
A BRIEF HISTORY about Opus 40:
In 1938, Harvey Fite (1903-1976), one of the founders of the Bard College Fine Arts Department, purchased an abandoned quarry (reportedly for $250) in the town of Saugerties, NY, in Ulster County, about 100 miles north of New York City.
Over a period of 37 years, he created the monumental world-acclaimed 6 ½-acre bluestone sculpture now known as Opus 40.
Opus 40 has been featured in the New York Times, Architectural Digest, on network TV, and in many other publications and media.
Opus 40 has been designated A National Historic Place.
