Grounds for Sculpture

Filed under: Fun and Interesting,News & Articles — Paul Kiesche @ 8:45 am

Last weekend, my wife Melissa and I took a trip to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. Grounds for sculpture is a 35-acre public sculpture park with amazing visuals around every corner. The entire park is an experience from the temporary indoor exhibit, to the over sized outdoor sculptures to the tiny hidden artworks. The park has a mystical feeling to it.

We started the morning off with brunch at Rats, a beautiful restaurant located in the park. Even brunch was an experience with delicious food in a magical setting.

After brunch we walked the 35 acres in 95 degree heat and it was worth every step. Only next time we’ll try to remember to bring water with us. The park has many paths that lead you through the woods, a lake, bamboo forests, hidden paths and indoor exhibits. The sculptures include a wide range of styles, sizes, mediums and concepts. Many of the sculptures are interactive, but be sure to read the signs as many are not. The park certainly was planned out well and really builds quite an experience. Sculpture styles included futuristic, realistic, classic, abstract, impressionistic, bizarre to even voyeuristic.

If you’ve been there before, let me know your experience, or let me know if you go!

Here are some pictures to give you a glimpse of the park.
