As of 2015, the process for submitting sculptures to the Grounds For Sculpture sculpture park and museum in Hamilton, New Jersey is unknown. Artists wishing to submit a sculpture for consideration should contact Grounds For Sculpture at groundsforsculpture.org.
Grounds For Sculpture is located on 42 acres on the former site of the New Jersey State Fairgrounds. It was founded to promote contemporary sculpture through exhibits, community events and educational workshops. The sculpture park has more than 270 sculptures as of 2015; examples include "Crossing Paths," "The Tooth" and "America the Beautiful" by Grounds For Sculpture founder J. Seward Johnson. It first opened in 1992 by appointment only.
While the process for submitting sculptures is not available on its website, Grounds For Sculpture adds approximately 15 new sculptures each year and hosts artists in residence. For example, in 2012, the museum featured an artist-in-residence project with Mark Parsons; Parsons worked with volunteers to create maps to use as a blueprint for his final sculpture. He also held lectures and workshops throughout his six-month residency. Grounds For Sculpture purchases pieces through public tax-exempt bonds and private foundations; occasionally the organization will commission a specific work, such as "Golden State" by Isaac Witkin and "Space of Stone" by Magdalena Abakanowicz.
