Woodstock is famous for its burgeoning artistic community, dating back to the late 1800s. The Byrdcliffe Colony, established in 1902, is one of the nation’s oldest arts and crafts colonies. Artists flocked to Woodstock to teach and produce furniture, metal works, ceramics and weaving. www.woodstockguild.org
Opus 40, the monumental world-acclaimed 6 ½-acre bluestone sculpture located in Saugerties, NY, is definitely worth a visit. It took Harvey Fite 37 years to complete. www.opus40.org
