Grounds For Sculpture was founded with the vision of creating a one-of-a-kind, public non-profit sculpture park where everyone can engage with art, natural surroundings, and people in an enjoyable and leisurely way. The Park continues the legacy of its founder, J. Seward Johnson by bringing together an eclectic and ever-changing collection of well-known, popular, thought-provoking, and whimsical contemporary sculpture in the Park¹s delightful 35-acre landscape. Established in 1992 on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds, the Park presents surprising moments of discovery and delight through unique installations throughout the park-like grounds and in the exhibit pavilions. Transportation to Grounds For Sculpture will be made available from the official conference hotel each day. More Information For more information, please contact us at or 609-689-1051 x302
