  1. I am planning a resurrection of the Art Show that was held around the Reservoir in Druid Hill Park for the 150th anniversary of the lake. I would love to be able to include an option to visit the sculptures. Is that possible.? Thanks, Barbara

  2. Beautiful and creative use of natural resources. Are Mr. Acton’s works or his sculpting services available in Anne Arundel County?
