Grounds for Sculpture extends over 42 acres (17 hectares), which will take several hours for anyone to walk around and view, even partially, what is on display. In addition to sculptures by Seward Johnson, there are also works by other artists.
Grounds for Sculptures is a sculpture park in Hamilton, NJ, nor far from where I live. Its founder is Seward Johnson whose work has long been criticized by art critics as “kitsch”, with some even refusing to call him an artist. From the throngs of visitors yesterday, it seems that the public does not share those views. It was a beautiful, sunny day for photography, and here is a sample of what I saw. They are mainly sculptures based on famous paintings that you will easily recognize.
