Seward Johnson Celebration, May 21+, 2023

The Hopewell Vally Arts Council has obtained permission to install several of the late Seward Johnson’s Sculptures around the Hopewell Valley.

The first and largest is “The Awakening,” installed in St. Michaels Preserve with an opening celebration on May 21, 2023. Candace and I rode our bikes to the installation.

Later, eight additional  - life size - sculptures were installed around Hopewell Valley. Over two days,  June 19-20, 2024, I rode my bike to visit all of them. There was one at each of the four elementary schools in the township, one at the middle school/high school, two in Pennington and one in Hopewell Boro. Stll later, the final two showed up and rode to get photos on July 8 and 9.
