Recently I visited

Grounds For Sculpture

in Hamilton, NJ.  This place is A-MAZ-ING, I’ve never seen anything like it.  GFS is a sculpture park and museum  founded by John Seward Johnson in 1992.  I heard about GFS a few years ago but had no idea how really unique and quieting to the mind and spirit GFS is.


The sculptures were fantastic …

even thought provoking like the one below… which one is the real one?

But it was the tableaux, often hidden away in secluded settings that I enjoyed the most.

In some cases I felt like I was intruding.

In others it was more like walking through a different century.

And in others still… mind games of sorts.

‘Forest of The Subconscious’

I’m pretty sure MY subconscious doesn’t look like that, but who knows.

I loved my visit to Garden Of Sculpture, I felt very content here, I hope someday to go back and see more of it.  It’s not possible to see it all in one trip,  each winding path, or secluded glade leads you off in another direction.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

One thought on “Grounds For Sculpture …

  1. I have to say that this sculpture park is awesome. It is not unique in the world. Here in Finland we

    Wacky statues.

    Huge collection of “odd” statues.

    Or what about:

    Wooden outsider art

    World is full of art, that we must to find.

    Happy New Year!
