with resident artist, Christine Stoddard

Visitors to Annmarie Garden are invited to take part in this exciting public art project.

Christine Stoddard is spending the summer with us as she creates 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 will be used in combination with Christine's construction and painting process. The project will be completed with the help of guests to the Garden and completed by the end of August.



Christine Stoddard is a Salvadoran-Scottish-American writer and artist who lives in Brooklyn. Her visuals have appeared in the New York Transit Museum, the Ground Zero Hurricane Katrina Museum, the Poe Museum, the Queens Museum, the Condé Nast Building, George Washington University's Gallery 102, and beyond. In 2014, Folio Magazine named her one of the top 20 media visionaries in their 20s for founding the culture magazine, Quail Bell. Stoddard also is the author of Hispanic & Latino Heritage in Virginia (The History Press), Ova (Dancing Girl Press), Chica/Mujer (Locofo Press), Lavinia Moves to New York (Underground Voices), The Eating Game (Scars Publications), and two miniature books from the Poems-For-All series.
