Grounds for Sculpture

If you haven't yet been, you should definitely visit the Grounds for Sculpture park and museum in Hamilton (think Trenton), New Jersey. I snapped the photo above at the park while walking the grounds with my next door neighbor. This particular artist crafted quite a few works around the grounds. You can actually sit with the art, if you wish.

The sculptures are fabricated from all manner of materials. The artwork above is made from blown glass and metal. We saw Richard Jolley's unique glass work in the beautiful and airy museum building.

We also witnessed several male and female peacocks wandering around the Domestic Arts building and the cafe. We thought someone was shouting at us, but it was just the peacocks doing their mating thing.

If you want to see my very short film of the peacocks, click here.
