  1. FOLKSY Cultural Traditions and Outside Visions

    April 27, 2019 - September 22, 2019 @ Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

    Date: Apr 26 2019 - Sep 22 2019 Gallery: Kay Daugherty Gallery Join us as we explore the wide realm of folk art, outsider art, and visionary art - and other artistic expressions that are often situated outside the world of mainstream fine arts. This exhibit will highlight the unconventional, the authentic, and the self-taught artists. What materials and perspectives are artists exploring? How are artists blurring the lines between fine and folk, maintstream and outsider? What cultural traditions, personal histories, or social commentaries inspire their work? What identities and issues are finding a voice? How does this work challenge our ideas and address the human condition? These and other ideas and expressions will find a home in this exciting new exhibit.

  2. Teen Home School Kayak mini-series

    May 7, 2019, 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM @ Kings Landing Park

    For students ages 12-16 years old - no parent needed Our spring Teen Homeschooler classes will be a 3-part series on kayaking and the ecology of the Patuxent river and its tributaries. Each month we will go out in kayaks to explore the river and the areas around it. We will use nets, water quality equipment, and our own senses to learn more about the river and the plants and animals that call it home. Teen homeschool days will give your teen a chance to get hands on experience with science and nature activities, provide an opportunity for service, and have fun in the company of other teens while doing it.

  3. Public Archaeology Program

    May 7, 2019, 10:00 AM - June 29, 2019, 4:00 PM @ Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum (JPPM)

    Every summer, volunteers are given the opportunity to see what it is like to be an archaeologist and excavate an actual site, through our Public Archaeology Program. You can help us dig and screen for artifacts in the field, or wash, label, and count objects at the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Lab. And if you don’t want to get dirty, you can just watch the work in progress. You can come as often as you want – an hour, a day, the entire season! It’s a fun way for the whole family to learn about the past. Who knows what great discoveries await you?! Field work is Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Lab work is Tuesdays and Thursdays. Public Archaeology is free, open the public and all ages are welcome, but registration is required. Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. To register, please contact Ed Chaney at 410-586-8554 or email: ed.chaney@maryland.gov
