Welcome to Scansen173, a private modern open air art collectiondeveloped from the principles and philosophy of the modern garden of the Museum of Modern Art and Storm King in New York. Scansen173 is a member of the SMA (Small Museum Association) and the AAM ( American Alliance of Museums) . You are looking at some of the 118 + surreal/abstractsculptures, including 17 + installations and assemblagesfound on our 2 1/4 acre property located near Princeton, New Jersey. Over the next year we expect that the number will increase to 135. Our site, a former farm and preschool, has more than 500+ elderly trees, a pond with frogs and two turtles, a bridge,stone walking trails, vegetable and wildflower gardens, one hidden garden, an art gallery, a zen garden and many areas to enjoy the outdoors under the canopy of our very old trees. Mother nature also supplies a myriad of creatures such as deer, butterflies, hummingbirds, and an occasional fox
