LIVINGSTON, NJ - Temple B’nai Abraham’s Sisterhood and Prime Time recently hosted a trip to The Grounds for Sculpture’s Seward Johnson: The Retrospective. Johnson who founded Grounds For Sculpture, located in Hamilton, NJ, in 1992, was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2013.
The exhibition was scheduled to close on September 21, but due to its overwhelming popularity, over 150 outdoor sculpture installations will be extended into July 2015. Seward Johnson: The Retrospective presents an overview of the popular sculptor’s 50-year career through a lifetime collection of his works, including Forever Marilyn, the 26-foot tall, 36,000-pound Marilyn Monroe sculpture from his Icons Revisited series, as well as the lifelike bronze figures of ordinary people that are familiar sights throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia from his Celebrating the Familiar series. The outdoor elements of the exhibit include 10 monumental scale bronzes, never before brought together in one location.
