Strong-Cuevas studied at the prominent and long established Art Students League of New York, learning wood and stone carving under the tutelage of John Hovannes in the mid-1960s. She later expanded her approach to creating works and began to work in plaster, this time with Toto Meylan. Besides bronze, some of her works have been cast in stainless steel and aluminum. Careful attention is paid to the surface of her sculptures; and, according to the medium, some are polished to a gleaming finish, some are brushed, and others are treated with a patina.

Sculptures by Strong-Cuevas have been exhibited in one-person shows in New York City and the Hamptons on Long Island. In addition, her works have been represented in group exhibitions in galleries in the United States and Europe, such as The Bruce Museum in Greenwich and the Kouros Gallery in Ridgefield, both in Connecticut; The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, NY; Shidoni Contemporary near Santa Fe, NM; Biennale III and IV held in MonteCarlo; and the Tolman Collection in Singapore.

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.
