Exploring "Grounds for Sculpture"

Exploring "Grounds for Sculpture", Trenton, New Jersey (B)

“Grounds for Sculpture” is a sculpture garden that is quite close to where my husband and I live in New Jersey. We have been hearing about it ever since we arrived in the Garden State. It wasn’t until this past weekend that we finally made the journey to visit it. It has been by far our favorite adventure since moving here. “Grounds for Sculpture” is beautiful, relaxing and a wonderful place to take photos and enjoy contemporary art.

The picture above of the large Marilyn Monroe statue is probably the most famous piece the gardens have. She was created by Seward Johnson (he is also the founder of Grounds for Sculpture). This post will contain many photos of the gardens, but I should warn you, some of the statues are depictions of nude people (I’ve placed those pictures toward the end of the post). So, if you are reading this at work, proceed with caution. Haha.

My husband and I spent around 3 hours going through the park, but I feel we could have stayed far longer. There is art literally everywhere you look. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
