  “A Turn of The Century” by Seward Johnson ©1995, 2003.
One of the four figures seated at a nearby table represents Johnson himself. And an art gallery director is portrayed as a bouncer demanding, “Were you invited?”
Grounds For Sculpture’s indoor galleries host changing exhibits. “Masayuki Koorida: Sculpture” is now on view in the Museum Building. A short video, Power of Stone, explains Koorida’s interest in mathematics, geometry and natural processes. His sculptures can take up to two years to create. The show includes large-scale works in granite and marble, in addition to small playful works in stainless steel and acrylic.
Other current exhibits are “Michael Rees: Synthetic Cells,” which combines augmented reality and inflatable vinyl sculptures; “James Carl: oof,” a monumental wall relief inspired by the egg carton; and “James Carl: woof,” which should win an award for the most creative use of
venetian blinds.
First-time visitors may find the sheer number of sculptures overwhelming. Signage at each piece presents only the title, artist and medium, and because rambling is encouraged it’s easy to forget where you saw what. If you want to know more about a particular piece, make a note of the number, take a picture, and look it up on the website later. Better yet, return to Grounds For Sculpture for a free docent-led tour to learn more. It’s a gem that deserves revisiting.o
