Grounds for Sculpture is a forty-two acre sculpture garden and arboretum on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded by Seward Johnson to promote the understanding and appreciation of contemporary sculptures, the park has been enchanting visitors since 1992. A number of Johnson’s tableaus are based on well-known nineteenth-century paintings and are on view throughout the Grounds. His life-sized three-dimensional works based on well-known paintings “allow an intimacy with the paintings that the paintings don’t allow themselves.” You will no doubt be enchanted and surprised by the sculptures. Enjoy a guided tour of some of the many sculptures and then visit the museum galleries with rotating exhibits. Lunch at the historic Nassau Inn, located in Princeton, NJ followed by a guided motorcoach tour of this University city which will cover James Madison, TS Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald and more, not to mention Revolutionary War Sites. This is a very special tour and we hope you will join us.
