The Brooke Barrie Art Fund has been established to recognize former Grounds For Sculpture Curator and Director Brooke Barrie for her contributions made as part of the founding team that created GFS.

Contributions made to the Brooke Barrie Art Fund will be established in an endowment fund that will support acquisitions, conservation care, and exhibition development. The Brooke Barrie Art Fund enables us to grow GFS’ current collection of fine art, and help to broaden and enrich the public experience of art, now and in the future.

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.
