From Cee’s to Shiny Cee’s

Time for a change of pace: switching from the A to Z Challenge to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Cee’s theme this week is “shiny.

Here’s a great place for photography:    Grounds for Sculpture

Grounds for Sculpture near Trenton, New Jersey was the brainchild of sculptor, J. Seward Johnson.  Built on New Jersey’s old fairgrounds, Grounds for Sculpture opened in 1992, and now displays over 270 works by well-known artists.  Some of the life-size pieces are serious, some whimsical, some humorous, some modern, some traditional, but all guaranteed to increase your appreciation and enthusiasm for large sculpture. While strolling around the grounds, you will be surprised and delighted many times by what you see. The park is a photographer’s seventh heaven. It’s a good place for families and friends to visit.

  1. Over 270 sculptures? Oooh! I could spend all day there enjoying the art!

    • Linda, You would love this place. I have only been once, but I plan to go again. I want to go at least once each season because the environment changes so much each time. Great photo ops. New exhibits coming, too.

  2. You found some wonderful shiny objects to photograph. Wonderful!
