Grounds for Sculpture

Back in April I suddenly found myself at Grounds for Sculpture, which is an open air sculpture museum near Trenton, NJ. Grounds for Sculpture opened in 1992 on the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds, and was founded by J. Seward Johnson, who maintains a studio on site. The park includes quite a few of his painted bronze figures, plus a huge and varied collection of contemporary sculpture. It’s a great place to spend the day – we ate lunch in the café and the kids were enthralled by the many peacocks that have the run of the place.

These photos were made using an ONDU 6×6 camera.
