Into the whimsy

August 22, 2013

Has there ever been a place you’ve driven by a hundred times and assured yourself you’d eventually visit?

With a son living in NYC, I’d travelled to and from the Hamilton train station in New Jersey more times than I could count. Along I-295, near the exit, enormous pieces of art would capture my eye and take my breath. More pieces surround the road by the station entrance.  I yearned to wander into the whimsy of their origin, but never had. Until last week.

I finally explored the Grounds for Sculpture. But only just a bit of it, as the art park was offering a twilight special. And I think at least four hours are needed to really immerse yourself in this 47-acre wonder. But go, get a glimpse, because from now until September 3, the grounds will stay open late from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for just $6 (half-price admission).

The museums won’t be open, but a small snack bar will be. It even serves beer and wine.  Stroll with your sweetheart. Take your friends. Be sure to bring bug spray though, and your camera. Half the fun, for us anyway, was slipping into the scenery…

    Bucks County Playbook’s photographer, Bailey, visits one of my favorite places and makes some wonderful photos. Grounds for Sculpture is just over the Delaware River from Bucks County and shouldn’t be missed.

    We’ve had the same reaction each time we went to the station this summer (three times to NYC). On the last trip, Chris said, we really have to go there. Well now, we really have to go there for sure! Thanks Bailey.

    One of the truly unique sites for those of us who live in this region. Captured for us mortals by Bailey Fucanan.
