A Place for Receptive Silence
"A tribute to the living community and history of the Quaker Community of Sandy Spring, Maryland."
Sandy Spring, Maryland is home to one of the oldest Friends communities in the United states (established in 1753). A meeting house built in 1817 is located a short distance from the Sandy Spring Museum, the site of this work. The structure is a scaled-down version of the existing meeting house. Plants were chosen to reflect the crops grown over the history of the Quaker community.
