Bruce Beasley was born in Los Angeles in 1939. From 1959 to 1962, he studied sculpture at the University of California, Berkley whose faculty at the time included artists Jacques Schnier, Wilfred Zogbaum, and Peter Voulkos. Throughout his career, Beasley experimented with and continues to explore various sculptural mediums ranging from cast aluminum to Lucite to bronze to granite to wood. He has had numerous solo exhibitions, participated in group shows, and is represented in museum collections throughout the United States and Europe including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, NY; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City, NY; Musee d’Arte Moderne, Paris, France; National Museum of American Art, Washington DC; Staditische Kunsthalle Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; to name a few. In 2005, the first retrospective exhibition of Beasley’s work was held at the Oakland Museum of California.

We have received many questions about whether the opening of state parks includes Grounds For Sculpture. Please note at this time we remain closed. 

As a nonprofit organization we are not part of the state parks system and we are not yet permitted to open. We are watching the situation closely. When we are permitted to open, we are determined to do so in way that is safe for our staff, volunteers and visitors.

We know the value of being out in nature and experiencing art is all the more important and restorative during these uncertain times. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to experience GFS later this season when we are permitted and able to reopen. We are tending the garden to ensure we are ready when the time comes.
