Opus 40 Mission and Programs
“The monumental Opus 40 site stands in testament to the artistic whimsy of the late Harvey Fite.”
Opus 40 is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization including a sculpture park, gallery and museum as well as 50 acres of meadows, forested paths and bluestone quarries — including 6.5 acres of earthwork sculpture — in the heart of the Hudson Valley in Saugerties, NY.
We welcome guests five days a week from April through November, and are available for educational field trips, guided tours and weddings all year long. We also host an eclectic array of events, including nature walks led by Audubon educators, art workshops, and live music and theatrical performances — all with the majestic Catskill Mountains as the backdrop.
At Opus 40, our mission is to support the legacy of the renowned artist, stone mason and Bard College professor Harvey Fite whose work defines our site, as well as to engage and inform local communities and Opus 40 visitors by offering affordable sculpture and museum visits/tours and historical, cultural, artistic, educational and entertainment programming.
