We already loved Grounds for Sculpture, but now there is another reason to head there this summer. You and the kids won’t want to miss their latest exhibit Impulse, which opens on June 11.
The big feature of this melding of art and technology installation is the 15 massive see-saw, which will take over the south end of the Great Lawn. The see-saws will become illuminated and produce sound as visitors sit across from each other, and, once in motion, the arrangement of lights and sounds will come together to form a transforming arrangement.
“Impulse will add new dimensions of fun for visitors of all ages,” said GFS Executive Director, Gary Schneider. “We’re thrilled to host such a dynamic and interactive art installation, and to be able to offer our guests that much more reason to visit the sculpture park after dark.”
While on the see-saws, each visitor evolves into a conductor, revitalizing each composition with distinctive lights and sounds. Illusions created by the lights alter the landscape of Grounds For Sculpture, transforming the Great Lawn into an ever-changing array of art.
This cool exhibit, which debuted in Montreal, will only be in NJ from June 11 to July 9. You’ll want to snag tickets in particular for Friday and Saturday nights when GFS is open until 9 PM. And don’t forget to reserve your tickets in advance for a guaranteed time slot.
