Grounds For Sculpture is located on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. Founded by Seward Johnson, the non-profit park has been enchanting visitors since 1992. Visitors to the park can enjoy the outdoor permanent collection which features hundreds of magnificent large-scale outdoor sculptures, rotating indoor exhibitions in two 10,000 square foot museum galleries. In addition, guests can learn about contemporary sculpture through a variety of educational programs including art classes for all ages, artist residencies and lectures, tours for adults, schoolchildren, toddlers, and touch tours for the blind.

The park also offers various special events, concerts and performances, shopping, and dining–including the Zagat-rated fine dining destination known as Rat’s Restaurant. In 2009, over 115,000 people visited Grounds For Sculpture. Conveniently located in the New York–Philadelphia travel corridor just outside of Princeton, New Jersey, Grounds For Sculpture is easily accessible by road and rail. With ample free parking available on site, the sculpture park is open year round, six days a week. Please note, it is closed on Mondays.



  1. I pass the statue Unconditional Surrender every day on my way to work and it starts my day with a smile. Imagine how upset I was the 1st time it was loaned out, but back it ame..Now I’ve heard that it was loaned to Italy? Is that so and will it come back to rest in Hamilton/Klockner Ave. again?.. I can see it visiting states in the US but Italy???? Why?
    I thank you in advance for answering my questions.

  2. Nobody answered the question but I think art has no borders, so why not Italy? Or anywhere else, for that matter. I think it’s a terrific idea to loan pieces out so that others will enjoy them as much as we do!

    • Thank you Vivian. I did not mean to imply that Italy or any other country should not be able to enjoy our art, I mainly wanted to know if the statue would come back to where it was across from the train station i Hamilton. There are statues that have been there for years without moving and I was just hoping that this would be one that comes back.
      Thank you again,
      Patty Dean
