Where Ben makes a fool of himself around sculptures

Apologies for the lack of blogging – have been on a week-and-a-half-long vacation!

While visiting my college roommate Eric at Princeton last week, his fiancée Jen took me to an amazing local attraction: Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ. “Sculpture garden” doesn’t do the park justice in terms of how beautiful the scenery is, how interesting some of the sculptures are, or how cool some of the three-dimensional recreations of classic paintings are.

And, as I did before in the de Young sculpture garden, I decided to, in between admiring the park and its resident sculptures, “have a good time” (thanks to Jen for her patience and willingness to indulge my silly side):

Here’s me trying to get sweet with a lady. Her male friend didn’t seem too happy to see me:

Here, I explain my life story to a very interested dinner party (see if you can recognize the painting!):

One of the lovely ladies in the above party didn’t believe a word I said, whereas the other wore a shockingly hideous dress:

Nearby, a very lovely woman invited me to watch her shower:

Here, I hang out with some of the locals – who for some reason, enjoyed hanging out on the grass, naked (see if you can recognize this painting!):

These next two pictures show how I learned to avoid touching big cats:

This is me, soaking in the glory of the universe:

Needing some cash (to pay for my flight home), I robbed a nice couple who were in the middle of an embrace…

image

Jen, being a very talented artist, was not impressed by one of the local painters:

image

And quickly spread rumors about the painter’s lack of talent:

image

A gentleman and I lectured a young woman about the dangers of associating with bad men:

image

I also met a guy who really seemed to get me:

image

I found out that sheep are really cool to hang out with:

image

I tried to learn how to dance from a local maiden (I don’t think I succeeded):

image

A local and I decided to watch some local women dance (Can you recognize this painting? And yes, the “guy” I’m lying next to is a sculpture):

image

Enchanted by the beautiful sculptures around me, I decided to pray to the Muses for artistic inspiration – I’ll tell you if I ever get any :-):

image

As you can see, I had one helluva time and would definitely recommend a visit!
