All of you art and architecture fans out there, listen up! You are about to fall in love! This past Labor day, I celebrated my day off by visiting an art facility in my town with my family. The most interesting thing about this facility is that is entirely outdoors! Grounds for Sculpture, in Hamilton, NJ is a 35 acre outdoor art gallery for sculptures for all shapes and sizes. Art enthusiast and sculptor, Seward Johnson, heir to the Johnson and Johnson throne, acquired the land that served as the New Jersey Fair Grounds before being left abandoned and derelict for many years after the 1950s. Now, its home to more that 250 sculptures scattered throughout a perfectly manicured outdoor setting, two restaurants, including the world-famous Rat’s Restaurant that serves as the home base of Kevin Sbraga, winner of last year’s Top Chef competition on Bravo and two galleries used to display art and other exhibitions. Check out more about Grounds for Sculpture and make sure to check local city and state guides for interesting destinations that might be located near you.
I was truly inspired by the beauty of this place. All I kept thinking while taking these pictures was “Damn, I would love to get married here!”
Make sure to check back for Part II later this week for more pictures and information.
Long Live Luxury,
