HAMILTON, NJ.- Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) has reopened its premier outdoor sculpture garden, inviting the public to explore nearly 300 contemporary sculptures set in a 42-acre landscaped park with new health and safety procedures in place. Founded by Seward Johnson, GFS features the foremost collection of the artist’s sculptures as well as works by both established and emerging sculptors, including Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, George Segal, Magdalena Abakanowicz, and Isaac Witkin. To provide moments of whimsy and discovery, the sculptures are set within paved terraces, pergolas, and courtyards across the park and juxtaposed with natural woodlands, ponds, and bamboo groves. While the outdoor art gardens have reopened, indoor special exhibition galleries remain closed. Rebirth: Kang Muxiang, a special outdoor presentation of six large-scale sculptures created from steel elevator cables by Taiwanese sculptor Kang Muxiang, also remains on view.

“The interplay between art and nature at Grounds For Sculpture offers bountiful opportunities for rejuvenating cultural encounters and a welcoming environment for all ages,” said Gary Garrido Schneider, Executive Director of Grounds For Sculpture. “With recent shifts in social interactions, people are craving safe, vibrant outdoor experiences. We’re thrilled to once again be able to share our accessible and engaging open-air spaces with visitors, and to encourage respite, reflection, and delight, especially during these challenging times.”

Grounds For Sculpture is committed to presenting a dynamic, safe experience for all ages. All onsite educational programs, events, tours and group visits are cancelled at this time due to recommendations on limiting gatherings. Families can enjoy ArtBox, a new pick-up activity for children ages 5-12 that can be completed on site or at home with monthly themes to encourage reflection and creativity. Members also have access to private Member Mornings on the last Sunday of every month.
