Grounds For Sculpture is a 42-acre sculpture park, museum, and arboretum which opened to the public in 1992, has become a premier New Jersey cultural destination. Founded by artist and philanthropist Seward Johnson II, the venue presents and conserves an exceptional collection of contemporary sculpture, and provides rotating exhibitions in six indoor galleries with works by Seward Johnson and other artists. Rat's Restaurant is located on the grounds, and was conceptually designed by Johnson with an Impressionist Claude Monet-styled atmosphere. The scenery surrounding the restaurant features Johnson's own impressionist-inspired sculptures, including a bridge over a lily pond which is an homage to Monet’s painting Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge (1897-1899). The restaurant is named after the character "Ratty" from Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows which is one of Seward Johnson's favorite books. Please indicate your meal selection upon registration: Seared Salmon or Lancaster Chicken.
