The Jefferson Arts Committeew will take a trip to Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton on Saturday, June 14.

At its core are more than 270 sculptures by renowned and emerging contemporary artists, each thoughtfully positioned on meticulously landscaped parkland full of thousands of exotic trees and flowers.

Attendees have three options for lunch while at Grounds for Sculpture. To enjoy superb country French cuisine, make a reservation at Rat’s Restaurant, named for the gregarious character in sculptor and creator Seward Johnson's favorite childhood story book, the Wind in the Willows. Or enjoy a casual lunch menu for dining indoors or out in the Acer Courtyard at The Peacock Café. You can also visit the outdoor café featuring light fare and homemade desserts at The Gazebo overlooking Lotus Pond.

Note that food and beverages cannot be brought into the park, smoking is not permitted, but the taking of photographs and videos is encouraged. The peacocks and wildlife on the grounds are tame and love to have their pictures taken from a distance.
