If you were to pick up any copy of 'Sculpture' magazine you would come across an article or ad featuring the Grounds for Sculpture (GFS) located at the fair grounds in Hamilton, NJ. It a beautiful outdoor sculpture garden. Owned and operated by the sculptor John Seward Johnson Jr, GFS features sculpture from local, regional and international artists. Red Grooms, Dale Chiluly, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Andrew Rogers, Kiki Smith, George Segal and John Seward Johnson Jr are just a small handful of talented artists featured and exhibited at the GFS. The style of sculpture ranges from figurative, abstract, minimal, narrative, experimental, and interactive. There are plenty of nooks and crannies for those who like to explore, a few places to eat including Rats (a very swank and expensive restaurant), beautiful live Peacocks, and a wonderful rolling landscape. A great place to visit either alone or with a group. Def kid friendly (they will love the music piece by the main gallery).
Please visit the website below for additional information.. I will try to post some images of the sculpture in the near future.
