    More than 287 works by American sculptor Seward Johnson are on view at the Grounds for Sculpture, including a 26-foot Forever Marilyn, The Awakening and the 25 foot-tall Unconditional Surrender commemorating Times Square on D-Day. The lifetime retrospective spans five decades of work including life-size and monumental figures which are displayed across the 42-acre campus and three indoor galleries.
   Seward Johnson is an acclaimed artist whose 450 life-size bronze cast figures have been displayed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.
