Sowing the seeds for a deeper understanding of the power of nature as a healing space for individuals and communities
The centerpiece of Maryland Hall’s Founder’s Green is the labyrinth, which also features an artist’s circle, a changing array of large-scale outdoor sculptures and majestic elm trees and benches for reflection. Maryland Hall’s labyrinth was constructed in 2002, and is a replica of that inlaid in the floor of Notre Dame de Chartres Cathedral outside Paris. The Artist’s Circle sits on the opposite side of the labyrinth, and is a circular area that is usedby artists and arts classes on a regular basis and by visitors who come to reflect, meditate and enjoy the outdoors. Much of the Maryland Hall community, including students, teachers, parents and neighbors, enjoy the labyrinth, bench and artist’s circle year round. The space is within walking distance of the Bates High School community, the Spa Creek Trail, and the greater Annapolis community.
