Exploring Grounds for Sculpture

While we patiently await 'snow-less trails', why not join us for a day outdoors exploring the 42-acre Grounds for Sculpture? The site offers 270 sculptures of well-known and emerging artists who characterize the connection between art and nature. In addition to amazing art, beautiful grounds with thousands of trees, there is a roving muster of peacocks! We will venture on a self-guided walk throughout the grounds and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors. Bring comfortable shoes, $12 admission [$10 for 65+], camera, no food or beverage allowed; there are food concessions on-site. Meet at 11:00 am in front of Visitor's Center. Optional post activity late lunch or early dinner possible at local eatery.

    Thank you all for participating in a walk around Grounds for Sculpture - what a gorgeous day! Due to the size of the group and the venue, I was unable to spend time with everyone. The participants in my group changed several times. A special thanks to John J. for sharing his knowledge about some of the art. Our walk around Princeton University was really nice and included a stop at a spice shop, a pizza stop and a nice cup of cappuccino. Hope to see you soon on a future activity.

There's a Dunkin Donuts at this corner. Could we meet say around 9:30 ?? I have a red car and I'll be in the middle of the parking lot near an overhead light pole. Cell:[masked]-6439.

    Does anyone have a spare pass? I tried my library and all four passes are reserved through the end of May. Thanks.

    March 13, 2014

    • Terry B

      Elisabeth - My library does not reserve! I picked up my free pass tonight but it is only good for one.

    First I want to say to everyone that has registered, if you have never been here, you are in for an incredible treat. Secondly, I see there is a waiting list, which is confusing to me. I've seen some places/events that require limits due to space/seating etc. I'm not the organizer and they may have a reason for a 15 person limit, but from my experience at Grounds For Sculpture, there is plenty of room for everyone. My plan is to crash the party, makes some new friends and hope I don't hurt anyone's feelings in the process. It's suppose to be a beautiful day, see everyone Saturday !!!

    March 12, 2014

    • Terry B

      John - Please go on wait-list so you will be able to receive any updates. I will be emailing the group later today.

      March 12, 2014

    • John J.

      Twas worded intentionally, as to not discourage anyone "waiting" to decide to do something else. I'm a very respectful person and Terry obviously has everything well under control. I really only intended to keep the comment box entertaining and encourage participation. Absolutely no bad intent here. As requested, I joined the wait list. (Tons of smiles to all)
