Grounds for Sculpture

Posted on

We visited Grounds for Sculpture today, and what a beautiful day for it! Unlike our first time there it was not ninety million degrees. Instead it was a balmy 80 or so with gorgeous blue skies as a backdrop for the amazing outdoor art. This time we saw the other half of the grounds that we had not seen before. Like last time I just loved all the Seward Johnson sculptures-recreations of paintings either life size or larger.  We all had fun posing with his version of Matisse’s Dance.

This was my favorite of the day. I love the actual hill, flowers (fake, but it took me a while to realize it-my clue? It’s not the right time of year for poppies) and metal all combining to make this beautiful image.:

We all liked posing in the various tableaux:

I was very taken with this guy:

The use of landscape design/art is amazing.

And of course it’s a great place to play around with pictures, cameras, and photo-ops. A lovely day-our last big special outing before we begin the whirlwind of five days a week of school (for the very first time!)
