Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center Community Arts Residency Program


About the Program
Annmarie’s residency program provides a serene place on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay for visual, musical, and literary artists to design and produce a community arts project. Most artists run their project through Annmarie’s creative reuse center, called the artLAB, where artists are encouraged to incorporate recycled or repurposed materials into their project. Artists will also have access to the galleries, a private studio space, the clay studio, the glass studio, the 30 acre sculpture garden, the waterfront area, etc. Residencies are meant to focus on community arts projects; those that merge arts and the environment are particularly desirable.

Spring/Fall Residencies:
Artists are invited to submit a proposal for a public art project OR a community art project that can be completed within 2-8 weeks. The project may result in a short or long term installation to be exhibited in the sculpture garden or one of the galleries. For public art projects, artist must be willing to engage with visitors, including group tours and/or field trip groups. For community art projects, artist will be expected to work closely with visitors.

Summer Residency:
Artists are invited to submit a proposal for community art project that will engage visitors of all ages. Artists will be expected to actively engage the public in an exciting and compelling project. Preference will be given to projects that use some or all recycled or repurposed materials. Artist is expected to work at least 24 hours a week directly with visitors. This residency typically runs June-August.
