CAA Arts Access and the Columbia University Clubs of Philadelphia and New Jersey invite alumni and friends for a day at Grounds For Sculpture on Saturday, September 24. Grounds For Sculpture’s Event Concierges will lead the group for a private one-hour walking tour of the outdoor permanent collection including Seward Johnson’s iconic sculptures such as Forever Marilyn and “Beyond the Frame” series celebrating the French Impressionists from Monet to Renoir. “Sculpture Search in the Park” family activity sheets are available at the Visitor’s Center, which provides an educational journey in the park while learning about sculpture.
The permanent collection also features four Columbia artists including Don Porcaro ‘76SOA, Suzanne Reese-Horvitz ‘77TC, Kiki Smith SOA Faculty Adjunct Visual Arts Program, and Bruce White Teachers College, which will be on view.
There will be four guided-tours starting at 11 a.m. Each tour is limited to 15 people per group. After the tour, we will provide bagged lunches for the group to enjoy outdoors (weather permitting). Please note the tours will take place rain or shine. Visitors to Grounds For Sculpture are reminded to dress comfortably for walking and appropriately for the weather. Boots and umbrellas are recommended on wet or rainy days.
