Wind your way through a sculpture park of original works of art situated on the museum’s rustic grounds.  ARTINA 2017 created awareness among visitors of the need to reconnect with the land and preserve nature for future generations. It included installations that interpret historic land use.

Juried by Ursula Achternkamp, artists include c.l. bigelow, Elsabé Dixon, Mary Annella “Mimi” Frank, Eve Hennessa, Martha Jackson Jarvis, Jin Lee, Cat Lukens, Raina Martens, Grant McFarland, Maryanne Pollock, Marc Robarge, Casey Snyder, and Diane Szczepaniak.

ARTINA 2017 is the second collaboration between Sandy Spring Museum and Washington Sculptors Group.  This project is funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
