Grounds for Sculpture
October 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us for a RiverArts sponsored trip to the acclaimed
Grounds for Sculpture, in Hamilton New Jersey
42 acre sculpture park, museum and arboretum founded by artist and philanthropist Seward Johnson, featuring an exceptional collection of contemporary sculpture and seasonally rotating exhibits in six indoor galleries.
It is a magical place where art and nature are always at play. At its core are more than 270 sculptures by renowned and emerging contemporary artists, each thoughtfully positioned on meticulously landscaped parkland full of thousands of exotic trees and flowers. It is a feast for the senses.
The works, many of them monumental, include those of such distinguished artists as Clement Meadmore, Anthony Caro, Beverly Pepper, Kiki Smith, George Segal, Magdalena Abakanowicz, and Isaac Witkin. They join the enchanting works of our visionary founder Seward Johnson as well as many others by the finest up and coming artists of our time.
Relax with your friends, enjoy the trip, and leave all the arrangements to us, and don’t forget your camera!
