Biographical / Historical

Earl W. Brydges Artpark State Park is a 108-acre state park located in the Village of Lewiston in Niagara County, New York. The park, which is officially named after former New York State Senator Earl Brydges, is generally referred to as Artpark. Artpark is operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and was founded in 1974. It was founded one year after artist Robert Smithson's death, and had an artist's residency program in his honor. It continued to be important for outdoor sculpture, with over 200 artists and collectives creating art and installations at the site between 1974 and 1984.

Over the course of its 40-year history, over 2.5 million persons have attended musical and theater performances at Artpark.
