SUMMER PUBLIC ART PROJECT


CHESAPEAKE MENAGERIE


with resident artist, Christine Stoddard

Visitors to Annmarie Garden were invited to take part in an exciting public art project. 

 

Christine Stoddard spent the summer of 2017 with us as she created a series of two dimensional mixed-media collage sculptures featuring animals indigenous to the area. A collection of recycled materials, found objects and natural elements were used in combination with Christine's construction and painting process. The project was completed with the help of guests to the Garden.
