There are many ways to become part of the Grounds For Sculpture community.

Grounds For Sculpture is a registered 501 (c)(3) organization. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on our generous family of Members, Volunteers, and Donors to help us maintain the sculpture park operations and related programs and exhibitions.

Each year more than 250,000 guests including students, school groups, families, and individuals are inspired by GFS’ beautiful 42-acre sculpture park,exceptional indoor exhibitions, educational programming, and engaging events.

Whether our visitors stroll the grounds, take a class, or enjoy a performance, our goal is to make contemporary sculpture accessible, to provide inspirational and transformative experiences, and most of all, to create an environment where all are welcome.

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.
