I found the best kept secret right out in the open here in the Hudson Valley



A fun little sculpture garden right on 17K

Recently my husband and I drove on 17K from Montgomery to Newburgh, and we whizzed by the Polich Tallex Foundry - world renown for casting artist’s sculptures in metal.

“What are those sculptures we just passed,” I asked my husband? “Oh, they have been there for years, and we don’t have time to stop,” he answered. I said, “We have got to turn around.”

It was a Sunday, and no one was around so we walked up a side platform and were mesmerized by the size and scope of the sculptures we found. I later learned they are the works of the well-known American artist Frank Stella.


The foundry is now located at 453 State Route 17K in Rock Tavern.
