sculpture garden and CT shoreline walk

Sculpture Mile Along the CT Shoreline 

Sculpture Shore is a walkable collection of contemporary art and outdoor sculptures placed around public spaces in Clinton, Madison, Guilford, New London, and Stonington communities. This was the Brainchild of William Bendig, the founder, and editor of the influential The Art Gallery magazine. His goal was to bring world-class art to everyday people. He created the Hollycroft Foundation to facilitate this dream.

The Hollycroft Foundation was started in 1992. It is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing museum-level sculpture to the public free of charge. Volunteers now run the foundation with president Brian Wendler at its helm.

Sculpture Shore has attracted many artists from around New England who get to showcase their often large, site-specific, outdoor Artworks along 50 miles of Connecticut’s lovely shoreline towns. We hope that you will take the time to view, experience, and enjoy these incredible works of art.
