DESCRIPTION

Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) is a 42-acre museum and sculpture park located in Hamilton, New Jersey. GFS was founded in 1992, on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds, by J. Seward Johnson to promote  understanding of and appreciation for contemporary sculpture. The permanent collection of over 260 sculptures is displayed throughout the park. Temporary exhibitions are held in the five indoor galleries, totaling 20,000 square feet, and in the 7-acre Meadow. Education programs serve all ages with workshops, tours, artist lectures and seminars. GFS also offers an arboretum, a museum shop, the Peacock Café and Rat’s, a Zagat-rated restaurant. Over 150,000 people from all over the world visit GFS each year.

Grounds For Sculpture is also the home of the International Sculpture Center (ISC), publisher of Sculpture magazine. GFS presents an annual exhibition of work by recipients of the ISC’s Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards.
