SPRING LAKE — Visitors from the The Seward Johnson Atelier have turned the Spring Lake business district into an outdoor art gallery.

On Saturday, April 6, an opening ceremony will be held at noon at Duggan Hall, 313 Washington Ave. to welcome visitors to come visit Spring Lake and view the sculptures from two of Se- ward Johnson’s collections, “Celebrating the Familiar” and “Icons Revisited.”

In attendance during the ceremony will be Collection Manager of The Seward Johnson Atelier Lynn De- Clemente Losavi, who will also speak to those in attendance.

From now until July 4 weekend, people can visit the 16 statues, privately funded through the local businesses and residents, through a self- guided tour map available at the Spring Lake Library, 300 Madison Ave., as well as at many local businesses.
