Every year, GFS partners with organizations throughout our local communities on programs and initiatives designed to reduce, or remove, barriers to engaging with the arts, while nurturing participants’ personal and creative development.

In addition, we work together with an array of area partners on events designed to explore and celebrate the diversity of our region. These programs include annual programs presented in partnership with the New Jersey Arts Education Collective, New Jersey Cultural Access Network, Outlet Dance Project, Sankofa Collaborative, and more.

These programs are made possible thanks to the generous support of foundations, business partners, state and federal grants, and our loyal members.

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.
