Amenities and Resources
Visit our arts campus to enjoy a variety of amenities on site. We're also happy to share local arts resources with our community.
The Cafe at Maryland Hall
We invite you to stop by the Cafe @ Maryland Hall located on the first floor while visiting the Hall. The Café is operated through a partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) and their culinary arts program at CAT South (high school) and is staffed by students and professional managers. Menu items include delicious baked goods, sandwiches, various beverages and local coffee.
The Old Home Place by Patrick Dougherty
In Spring 2021, renowned sculptor Patrick Dougherty, with a team of community volunteers, spent three weeks constructing a Stickwork sculpture on our campus. Made from tree saplings harvested from the Eastern Shore, the environmental sculpture is a must visit. Located on our front lawn next to the Labyrinth, the interactive sculpture can be enjoyed anytime.
Nature Sacred Labyrinth
Maryland Hall's front lawn--called the Founders Green--features a 42-foot labyrinth. The labyrinth at Maryland Hall, designed and constructed in 2001-2002, is a replica of the labyrinth inlaid in the nave floor of the Notre Dame de Chartres Cathedral outside of Paris.
The labyrinth is part of the Founder's Green (front lawn) of Maryland Hall which also includes walkways and a painter's circle. The labyrinth has eleven circuits to its single pathway, for a walk that is approximately one-half mile in length and has a diameter of just over 42 feet.
We are most grateful to Nature Sacred for their support of the labyrinth and the Founder's Green.
Annapolis' Free Little Art Gallery
In January 2021, two Maryland Hall pottery students, inspired by Seattle’s Free Little Art Gallery, decided to bring an outdoor miniature gallery to Annapolis. Maryland Hall’s campus seemed like the perfect fit.
The idea is similar to the ubiquitous free little libraries, but the exchanges are art rather than books. While enjoying the outdoors, people can view, make or take the art! All types of media and creations are welcome, even experiments, as long as the artwork is tiny.
A south county woodworker built the miniature building, benches, and easels using mostly reclaimed and donated materials. The F.L.A.G. is located outside our North entrance.
David Hayes' Leaf Figure
Our campus is the proud home of David Hayes' Leaf Figure (1975). The installation from the David Hayes Art Foundation is part of a year-long City-wide exhibition organized by Annapolis Arts District and the Inner West Street Annapolis Association.
Little Free Library
Located alongside the meditative Labyrinth, Nature Sacred installed a beautiful new community sharing library. Stop by to borrow, take or donate a book! With a regular rotation of books, you never know what you may discover.
Car Charging Stations
Maryland Hall has dual electric car charging station for electric car visitors available 24/7 for patrons who wish to charge their cars. The charging unit is located in parking lots C & D behind Maryland Hall.
Analemmatic (Human) Sundial
Maryland Hall is home to an Analemmatic (Human) Sundial, an educational garden "sculpture" created with mathematical computations to assist one in deciphering the time of day. One stands on the current month and reads his/her shadow location on the number shown on the "clock." It is adjusted for daylight savings time. It is located on the front lawn of Maryland Hall.
Maryland Hall was given the sculpture by the Garden Club of Annapolis in honor of Evie Renz. The sculpture is in memory of Renz's tireless energy and dedication of service to the community and the residents of the City of Annapolis.
