Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds is a vibrant community environment dedicated to arts education and appreciation on the Connecticut shoreline. Our mission is to create a bond between art, nature & community by inspiring and promoting participation in the arts.

Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds is situated on 4.5 acres on the Lieutenant River in the historic district of Old Lyme, Connecticut.  A center for the arts in Connecticut, and the birthplace of American Impressionism, Old Lyme is now also a center for abstract sculptural works from Studio 80.

 

Located next door to the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, where realistic figurative painting and sculpture are taught, Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds embraces the other traditional fine art establishments within this town while stepping “outside the box” to create and display abstract sculptural works inspired by nature.

 

Studio 80 is a full-scale fabrication studio, as well as the personal working space of Gilbert V. Boro. The 3500 sq. foot building was designed by Boro to complement the architectural design of the neighboring Lyme Academy of Fine Art.  The Studio offers fabrication, restoration & consultation services to the public. 

 

Although the Sculpture Grounds remain open daily from 9-5pm, Studio 80 is currently closed to the public for the safety and well-being of our staff, visitors & artists.  If you are interested in utilizing our services, please fill out the online form at www.sculpturegrounds.com. 

We invite you to visit Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds.  A look at this peaceful, shaded retreat is a must any time of the year. 

 

If you can dream it, we can build it! Studio 80 is available for all your project needs - from fabrication to restoration & consultations - we are here to bring your projects to life!
