The following several posts are all pics about this art exhibit. I love it!
If you ever get a chance to see any of J. Seward Johnson's sculptures, don't miss it. A brouchure titled J. Seward Johnson Collection discribes them best. Each sculpture is entirely made of bronze. The realism of the textures and details is the hallmark of Johnson's art, and this detailing is achieved through hours and hours of intense labor....
Mr. Johnson has made more than 250 life-sized figures and his collections can be seen in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. They are sponsored by local people or groups as is designated on a plaque. The neatest thing is how they are placed in a park. They are where the people the sculpture depicts would actually be. The brochure has the names of some of the sculptures and these I have noted. The ones I did not give the names were not in the brochure.
