|Lotus in Grounds for Sculpture 2012
126 Sculptor's Way, Hamilton, NJ 08619
Grounds For Sculpture is a 42-acre public sculpture park located in Hamilton, NJ. It was founded in 1992 on
the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds by J. Seward Johnson to promote an understanding of and
appreciation for contemporary sculpture for all people. The grounds were very nicely kept, especially the
aquatic ones. There were pure white lotus in the pond in front of the gazebo five or six years ago. This year
the stand of red rimmed white lotus east of the East Gallery of the Visitor Center really captured the interests
of the visitors. The following were some pictures from the Grounds for Sculpture. Peacocks on the grounds
are very interesting too.

Steve Tobin has a special exhibition of his Aerial Roots, 23 pieces in the inaugurating 7 acre Meadow of the grounds
though summer of 2012. This is one of a few pieces in the East Gallery. A few pieces of his paintings were displayed.
