Event and Vacation RentalsPHOTOS
Omi International Arts Center is home to some of the finest new event spaces in Columbia County!
Host receptions, performances, or meetings at the stunning Charles B. Benenson Visitors Center, Gallery and Café, schedule magical outdoor events or weddings in the Fields Sculpture Park, or retreat to the three buildings - featuring a federal farmhouse with full kitchen, living room, dining room, library, and communal space - overlooking the Hudson Valley.
Tents can be erected in several areas of the 90-acre park, affording unparalleled views of world-class sculpture, or placed contiguous to the Visitors Center to accomodate more guests. We rent space only, but have compiled a list of professional and highly recomended vendors who are familiar with our property and can supply all your needs. Wthin one half hour drive from Omi you will find the Catamount and Jiminy Peak Ski Areas, indoor tennis at a private club, galleries, shops and restaurants of Hudson, NY.
The property is magical, with seemingly endless views of the nearby Catskill Mountains. The houses themselves are extremely comfortable, with roomy bedrooms and welcoming common areas. The large and well stocked kitchen was a pleasure: we made good use of it. A fresh dusting of snow meant that we were able to enjoy a raucous session of New Years Day sledding: those that were a bit hesitant to join that activity were able to take a quiet strolls among the acres and acres of quiet fields, dotted with artwork. Our hosts were an absolute pleasure to work with, extremely accomodating to my needs, even making an exception at the last minute so that I might throw the party of my fancy. My group may have left Omi, but its spirit remains within us. All my guests are still recounting our time spent there. This is a truly unique place. Highly recommended! - V.U., guest.
Rates and availability vary.

Charles B. Benenson Visitors Center, Café, and Reception Area
The new Benenson Visitors Center, on the grounds of The Fields Sculpture Park, is the finest new event space in Columbia County. As is a LEED-certified green building, the space melds art, architecture, and landscape to inspiring effect. It is available to the public year-round. The Café can seat 60 people or 100+ for cocktails.
The Fields Sculpture Park
Events in the Park are truly magical. Tents can be erected in several areas of the 90-acre Park to afford unparalleled views amid world-class sculpture. Enjoy mountain vistas from your outdoor ceremony on the hill. Place the tent contiguous to the Visitors Center so your guests can have access to the restroom facilities and you may use the Café for cocktails and dining.
Located atop a bluff overlooking the Hudson Valley, three houses are available from Thanksgiving to mid-March for the exclusive use of groups for family vacations, retreats, business meetings and weddings. Now in our tenth season, we have hosted hundreds of guests from all over the world. Three separate buildings make up the compound with 21 guest rooms, common areas filled with modern art, a library, a fully equipped kitchen, and common space to accommodate 40 people for a reception or meeting.
