Wordless Wednesday Sculpture Garden

Wordless Wednesday- Grounds for Sculpture 
in Hamilton, New Jersey

Grounds For Sculpture is a 42-acre sculpture park and museum located in Hamilton, NJ, United States, on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Wikipedia

The grounds are beautiful with lots of landscaping and water. 
There is also a place to eat called Ratz ( a little pricy) I like their happy hours.

Marilyn Monroe

Forever Marilyn 
In 2014 The Grounds for Sculpture held a retrospective exhibit that honored  Seward Johnson.
The statue ,"Forever Marilyn," was brought from Palm Springs California to the Grounds for Sculpture
where this magnificent sculpture remained for 1 year. 


 UntappedCities.com described Grounds for Sculpture as 
an "Impressionist Oasis in New Jersey",
