A solo exhibition of artist Seward Johnson’s life-sized bronze sculptures will be welcomed to Downtown Toms River in an opening ceremony on May 8, 2015. The exhibition marks the first showing on a grand scale of Johnson’s work at the Jersey Shore, and it will serve to give the community an in-depth view of this artist’s unique creative spirit. Titled “Celebrating the Familiar,” the show will be on view along the streets of Downtown Toms River until early September 2015.~ Downtown Toms River Community Art Project

So you've heard about the statues coming to Toms River....to a mix of reviews from listeners, but now they are on display at various points throughout the area. So whats your thoughts now? are they a cool addition to Toms River? Personally I think it's a neat concept, but there are more pressing issues....but maybe for a moment it just takes our mind off the daily grind.

20 life-size sculptures of people doing everyday things will be on display downtown through the end of the summer, the work of artist and sculpture J. Seward Johnson. Look for Shawn & Sue posing with our new friends .... and tell us what you think of the project now that you've seen them .... Post your comments below
