Grounds for Sculpture

This past Sunday, I was invited by Rose & Joe to a special place an hour south of me.

P1020203
It is a 35-acre sculpture park created in the early 1990s by John Seward Johnson II, who is the grandson of the Johnson & Johnson creator. Seward himself is a sculptor of mixed regard. You may have already stumbled on one of his pieces if you live in Manhattan — they look like people doing ordinary things like sitting on a park bench.

Our docent, a tall & tan German man with white hair named Volker, led us on a walking tour around some of the more than 200 sculptures placed all around this skillfully landscaped park.

It felt like moving through a dream.

Here are some my favorites:

(This sculpture is actually a fountain of a woman peeing!)
