Grounds for Sculpture. The 42-acre sculpture park and arboretum on the site of the former New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Hamilton features works in wood, bronze, stone, steel and paper, according to its homepage. A message on the website reads: “The park and museum are temporarily closed and ‘all programming including workshops, events, rentals and tours are canceled. We will work to reschedule when possible. In the interim, we invite you to explore our collection of 400+ works on our website groundsforsculpture.org and our interactive map gfsmap.org, which features sculpture and horticulture throughout the grounds — a chance to discover something new and maybe learn even more about a longtime favorite.’ ”

A statement on the website, morrismuseum.org, reads: “While our doors are closed, we look forward to finding unique, creative ways to serve you, our public. We’ll be exploring virtual opportunities to connect you to the dozens of artists and performers, whom we had planned to showcase for you in person this spring. We’re working on engaging activities that can occupy homebound children and caretakers.” Visit the Facebook page at facebook.com/MorrisMuseum/.
