Stone Quarry Hill Art Park is open every day from dawn to dusk. The Art Park provides visitors the opportunity to explore unique outdoor artwork amidst 104 acres of conserved land, along four miles of trails, with vista views of the breathtaking rural landscape of Cazenovia and Madison County in Central New York. Inspired by the relationship between art and nature, the Art Park is dedicated to providing a unique environment for emerging and established artists to produce and showcase works in natural and gallery settings. Stone Quarry Hill Art Park is a non-profit organization that relies on memberships and donations to support its programs. Its mission is to educate and engage people and landscape through exhibitions, workshops, tours, and community outreach programs in the arts.
In addition to its art and nature programming, the Art Park catalyzes the production of site specific works of art through its Artist in Residence Program. Since its incorporation in 1991, over 100 artists from 19 states and 8 foreign countries have created artwork that responds to the landscape of Stone Quarry Hill Art Park.
Cazenovia was established in 1793 by John Linklaen. In 180, the property at 3883 Stone Quarry Road was settled as an early 19th century farm by a widow, Mary Hackley, and her two teenage sons. The foundations, hedgerows and a few apple trees make up what is currently referred to as the "Homestead Site," the oldest remains on the property. In the 1840's the quarry along Stone Quarry Road, opened and operated on a small scale until the late 1800's. Remnants from the quarry are still visible from Stone Quarry Road as one approaches the entrance to the Art Park. After many changes in ownership and changes in land boundaries, Dorothy and Robert (Bob) Riester, made their first land purchase in 1958, which included the 23 acres of Mary Hackley’s Farm.

  • I just heard about this attraction and decided to visit. I wish that there had been more information out there - I would have planned more time! I loved everything about it - outdoors, fresh air...  more »
  • $5 a head, walking is required. The art is outside so nature takes its toll. The indoor gallery has limited hours and we liked the members show. You may get muddy.  more »

  • Nice hike through fields and some wooded areas with art pieces along the way. Some of the pieces are better than others to put it kindly. Maybe some of the trails could be marked better , I made several walks down dead end paths with no reward of an art piece at the end.
  • Great place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Quiet and peaceful. The festival every August has some nice decor items for home, but they need to improve some elements of customer service.
