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. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements, or learn about upcoming tours.
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 work, 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. In the winter, 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.

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.
