Description

A talk and PowerPoint presentation about Grounds For Sculpture (GFS). GFS was founded by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. and opened to the public in 1992. Since its inception, the park has collected over 260 works including sculptures by renowned artists such Beverly Pepper, George Segal, Isaac Witkin, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Anthony Caro, James Surls, and Kiki Smith, among many others. In 2000, Grounds For Sculpture became a public not-for-profit corporation that relies on the support of visitors, art patrons, donations and grants to fund its programs and activities. Today, GFS hosts over 160,000 visitors annually who are attracted by the placement of sculptures in a beautifully landscaped natural setting, the changing exhibitions series – approximately 12 indoor and 8 outdoor annually – as well as the many educational programs and other activities offered.
