Omi International Arts Center is a not-for-profit arts organization with residency programs for international visual artists, writers, musicians, and dancers. The 300 acre campus is also the site for The Fields Sculpture Park, a public exhibition space with nearly 80 contemporary sculptures; Architecture Omi, exploring the intersection of architecture, art and landscape; and arts education programs for children.

Installed in the summer of 2007, the green roof at Art Omi is the thinnest and lightest system that we can build at 3" and established with Sedum plugs. The sculpture park sits in the Hudson Valley on the edge of the Catskills.

The Charles B. Benensom Visitors Center Art Omi Sculpture Park uses the Roofscapes Roofrug system with Apex Green Roofs as the greenroof contractor.
