That’s Worth Celebrating

©2017 The Seward Johnson Atelier, Inc.

This exhibition celebrates the life and work of Seward and Cecelia Joyce Johnson’s family—artists and philanthropists whose impact has elevated oceanography, sculpture, theater, and multidisciplinary art practices for over half a century. The design emphasizes a core tenet of Seward Johnson’s ethos: defamiliarizing the ordinary to reveal the magic in everyday life. Freestanding panels with cutout doorways and windows drive a sense of discovery, sharing vignettes of the family’s adventures and revealing serendipitous connections that led to the founding of the famed Johnson Atelier and Grounds For Sculpture.
