Art for All at New Jersey’s Grounds for Sculpture

Published in Side of Culture: A great day trip from NYC or Philadelphia, the beautifully landscaped 42 acres of the Grounds for Sculpture (GFS) provide an inviting setting year-round for almost 300 contemporary sculptures. The sculpture park was the vision of founder and artist Seward Johnson, who died in 2020. He wanted to present contemporary sculpture in a non-intimidating setting that could nurture everyone’s creativity. The works range from Seward Johnson’s hyper-realist sculptures, some based on Impressionist paintings, to abstract works by Bruce Beasley, among others: there’s something for everyone.
