Public Art plays a big role in our daily lives. Artists who specialize in public art projects are a special breed. Public Art can be large and influence the emotions of passersby.
Here's an interesting opportunity we just found out about...you only have a few days to apply, but the project is worthwhile.
The project is open to professional artists or artist teams residing in Maryland.
Here's a description of the project:
The permanent public artwork will be two-dimensional and will convey the themes of the Maryland National Guard. The artwork will be original and site-specific to the Easton Readiness Center site.
Of course you need to know about the money:
The artwork budget: $74,120 and the concept proposal fee is $860. The Artist Selection Committee will select up to three artists or artist teams to develop concept proposals for the artwork.
Artists can apply online at www.CallforEntry.org. Deadline: Monday, March 27, 2017, Midnight.
