Do not touch or climb sculptures. Climbing damages the artworks and is dangerous to the person climbing. Works which permit interactivity are listed on the Explore Map, available at the Benenson Center.
Ticks, poison ivy, mud, and other natural hazards may be present. Be prepared with sturdy footwear and appropriate attire.
Dogs are welcome, and must be kept on leash from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dogs must be kept on leash at all times in the Benenson Center.
Food and beverages are permitted in the park. The café in the Benenson Center is closed until further notice.
- Bicycles are permitted in the park.
Accessibility: The Benenson Center, Newmark Gallery, and restrooms are accessible to wheelchairs. Individuals with mobility impairments seeking to tour the park should call (518) 392-4747 to coordinate suitable arrangements. Two weeks notice of a visit is recommended.
Length of Visit : Plan at least one hour to visit sculptures in all areas of the park. The path system is circular, so one can go in either direction. There are many sculptures tucked away in the woods to discover! Maps and more information are available at the Benenson Center.
Tours: Guided tours are available with prior arrangements, and can be tailored to an age group, theme, or event. In addition, Art Omi Sculpture & Architecture Park offers educational workshops and tours for school groups and other organizations as well as free public programs throughout the year.

Terrain and seasonal considerations: The Sculpture & Architecture Park is open to the public every day throughout all weather, all year long. If seeking to experience all of the artworks on view, one will traverse grassy fields, forested paths, hills, and footbridges. There are no paved walking paths, and occasionally the trails become muddy and sometimes even impassable. Therefore, we recommend that visitors come prepared with sturdy footwear and weather-appropriate attire to best enjoy their experience.
Winter weather: In the event of snow or other hazardous winter conditions, the Benenson Center will follow the closure schedule of the Chatham Central School District. The Sculpture & Architecture Park will remain open. If conditions permit, groomed cross country ski trails are free and open to the public.
Art Omi is located in a rural, residential neighborhood. We ask that our visitors respect the character of the area by observing all local speed limits, driving cautiously, and parking only in designated areas. We ask also that visitors respect all park boundaries and signage, and be respectful of the quiet our neighbors have come to enjoy.
Art Omi hosts events throughout the year, the large majority of which are free and open to the public. Keep up to date with our events and more by joining our email list.
