Visit Art Omi
Dress for walking, snowshoeing, or cross country skiing and check current weather conditions before your visit! The Fields presents artworks and works of architecture situated on a natural landscape, and so there are no paved walking paths. We recommend that visitors come prepared with sturdy footwear and weather-appropriate attire to best enjoy the park.
Art Omi hosts events throughout the year, most of which are free and open to the public. Keep up to date with our events and more by joining our email list.

Art Omi is located two and a half hours north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley. The campus is located in Ghent NY and in close proximity to Albany and Hudson. Both cities offer convenient train access throughout the Hudson Valley Region.
The facilities, situated on 300 acres of open land, include a large two-story barn with indoor studios; contemporary residence buildings designed with a vernacular reference to local barns, surrounded by abundant perennial beds, expansive lawns dotted with fruit trees, adjacent to Art Omi: The Fields + Architecture.
A Federal Period farm house serves as a gathering center for our five residency programs, providing a full kitchen, television room and library; while the front porch overlooks rolling hills and the majestic outline of the Catskill Range. A swimming pool, bicycles, WiFi access and several state of the art computers are available on the premises. Art Omi's facilities are reserved for retreats, private rentals and our artists in residence.
Columbia County, and the nearby Berkshire Mountains, are popular destinations because of their historical, natural and cultural riches. From bird sanctuaries to modern dance, presidential mansions to farmer’s markets, the environs offer a singular blend of rural quiet and cultural stimulation. Staff and friends in the neighborhood are often available for excursions of interest to residents. The local library has a modest collection, but is a member of the Mid-Hudson group, calling on the resources of libraries within much of eastern New York.
