PLACE:  Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT

Jan’s “Happy Place”!  This is an opportunity for close-ups, abstracts, B&W, and landscapes

With over 100 sculptures woven throughout different gardens and courtyards, this en plein air art experience allows visitors to enjoy incredible large-scale contemporary sculpture on 4.5 beautifully landscaped acres.  Visitors are encouraged to explore the grounds and interact with the works, perhaps turning kinetic elements or wandering through open pieces. 

The sculptures are located throughout the property - from the decks of the house down to the waterfront! Please do not be afraid to explore! Many of the sculptures are located in the "Secret Garden" and picnic area situated between the house and the pool.

FLORENCE GRISWOLD MUSEUM – GARDENS & GROUNDS

Right next door are 12 acres of scenic beauty bounded by the picturesque Lieutenant River where you can walk all through the property and the old-fashioned gardens of Florence Griswold. She opened her home to artistic boarders who became known as the Old Lyme Art Colony and the grounds became the settings for many early American Impressionist painters.
