The Permanent Collection

Presented by Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center, In Association with the Smithsonian Institution

The indoor and outdoor works specifically commissioned for Annmarie are dramatic, ranging from a colorful ceramic gate that welcomes visitors to Annmarie, to a ramp that takes visitors up into the trees. Two favorite works, The Council Ring and A Surveyor's Map invite guests into the art to walk on, touch, read, and explore how art and nature complement each other. A Tribute to the Oyster Tonger, considered by many the most important piece in the collection, celebrates the rich cultural heritage of the Chesapeake Bay, and the proud watermen who for generations made their living off the resources of the Bay. Collectively, these diverse works allow visitors to explore the ever-changing shapes and shadows of the forest and the art it shelters.
