Since our founding, GFS has been a place for everyone. Public programs are designed for audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities and provide dynamic and layered points of entry into our exhibitions, collections, and environment while fostering new opportunities for creative exploration, meaning making, and knowledge and idea sharing.

These experiences include an array of free with admission programs and special events, including walk-in tours, dance and music performances, film screenings, conversation programs, and more.

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.
