Approximately a 45 minute drive from Philadelphia, nestled in the heart of central New Jersey, lies Grounds For Sculpture, 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 the visionary founder Seward Johnson as well as many others by the finest up and coming artists of our time.
In addition to touring the grounds, we are going to take a guided tour of French Impressionist paintings in sculpture. Timed tickets are necessary. They cost $15. for seniors and $18. for others. They cost $15. for seniors and $18. for others. It was suggested to buy them online as they can be exchanged for any reason to another date. Let's plan to meet at the entrance/welcome center at 10 am with a timed entry of 10:15 am. Parking is free.
We will have a meal afterwards at a spot to be determined. There are two cafes and a fine dining restaurant on the site.
