These summer teen programs are part of a multi-year initiative at Annmarie to provide southern Maryland teens with opportunities that foster creativity and community engagement. The highly successful text/message exhibit, a teen art exhibit that was exhibited at Annmarie last year, was the first phase of this initiative.
The $12,000 Dominion Foundation grant for Annmarie was awarded to Ann’s Circle, Inc., the 501 c 3, non-profit organization that works to support the many activities of Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center. The Dominion Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Dominion Resources, which owns the Cove Point liquefied natural gas facility in Lusby, Md. Each year, the Dominion Foundation contributes more than $20 million to non-profits like Ann’s Circle, located in communities where Dominion operates.
