Seward Johnson: The Retrospective

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.

Seward Johnson: The Retrospective.  The exhibit will feature more than 287 works, including 91 painted trays. His much-acclaimed Forever Marilyn, The Awakening, and Unconditional Surrender will be featured. Works will be sited in three indoor galleries as well as across the 42-acre park campus. Seward Johnson: The Retrospective will be on view through September 21, 2014.

The GFS 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.
