Jeffrey Maron

Jeffrey Maron received a B.S. in sociology from Washington University in St. Louis, MO followed by an M.F.A. in fine arts with a focus on sculpture from the same school in 1973. A Fulbright-Hayes Grant allowed him to study sculpture in Japan after graduate school. The experience of living in an Eastern culture had a profound effect on Maron’s developing philosophy and body of work.

His achievements have also earned him grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Works by this artist have been exhibited in many states and in Sweden, Monaco, and Japan. He is represented in private, corporate, and public collections, such as ones at Davidson College in North Carolina, Springfield Art Museum in Missouri, Japan’s Hakone Museum, and the Modern Museum of Art in Mexico City. A recent commission, Spirits’ Flight, was designed to create a sense of hope, tranquility, and renewal for the Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Currently, Maron has a work, ‘Moontide’, on view at Grounds For Healing, an outdoor garden designed in partnership with Grounds For Sculpture at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton to provide a serene, relaxing environment for patients and visitors. He resides in New York.

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.
