FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SEWARD JOHNSON SCULPTURES RETURN

TO WILDWOOD COMMUNITY PARKS

 

WILDWOOD, NJ – They’re back! The very lifelike Seward Johnson Sculptures that piqued so much interest and gained unprecedented popularity in Wildwood the last two years have returned to the city’s community parks: Holly Beach Park, J. Byrne Recreation Center, Duck Park, SOLCOW Park, and 26th & Pacific Avenue Park.


This art installation was originally the idea of Jennifer Robinson of the City of Wildwood Tourist Development Commission (TDC), which was established to promote growth, development, and quality of tourism. The goals of the TDC are to generate visitation to the City and its beaches, attractions, and special events and to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the community.

 

Seward Johnson was born in New Jersey and following the auspicious clipping of a newspaper ad for a beginner’s sculpture class, became well-known worldwide for his figurative sculptures. Spurred to strengthen communities through his artwork, Seward built an international community of artists with the Johnson Atelier, which continues to weave his sculpture into the fabric of everyday life through music, dance, poetry, food, all the things Seward loved.


The Seward Johnson sculptures will be on display until November and include a bike tour map that can be found on the City of Wildwood website. Here is a link to high-res images of the sculptures.


The Seward Johnson Atelier and City of Wildwood invite everyone to slow down, visit our parks, and enjoy! The Arts in the Parks series also includes innovative programming that puts the city’s community parks on display with family activities for residents and visitors alike.


“It’s easy sometimes to forget the simple things that give us pleasure. If we open our eyes, life is marvelous.” ~ Seward Johnson (1930-2020).
