Join us for a day-trip to Old Westbury Gardens in New York, boasting 200 acres of formal gardens and landscaped grounds, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy a guided tour of the early 20th century estate, and explore Revisiting the Familiar: Seward Johnson at the Gardens, a special exhibition of 35 works by Grounds For Sculpture founder Seward Johnson installed throughout the grounds and in Westbury House. The exhibit will feature three of Seward Johnson’s most popular series: “Celebrating the Familiar,” “Beyond the Frame,” and “Icons,” including the debut of a never-before-seen composition. Additional displays of the artist’s painted trays, maquettes of artwork never realized in bronze, and choice works by his friend and colleague, artist Herk van Tongeren, will also be on view.
