Maryland Art Place (MAP), in partnership The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore (DPOB) is pleased to announce an open ‘Call to Artists’. As an extension of MAP’s annual IMPRINT Project, MAP is working with DPOB to offer a unique opportunity for artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. The image of that artwork will be used to represent the annual Monument Lighting in Baltimore City to be held December 1st, 2016 where the artist will be publicly acknowledged for their work.
Now in its 45th year, The Monument Lighting will feature local entertainers, food, holiday activities, and a spectacular fireworks display. In 2015, nearly ten thousand people attended the event.
MAP only accepts 2-D works – photography, graphic design, print making, painting or similar media for duplication. All works must be no less than 4 x 4” and no more than 20 x 20”. Work should be oriented in a portrait style and sent in a file no less than 300 dpi for print. The final poster dimensions will be 18 x 24 with borders, sponsor logos, and the event copy.
The selected artist will benefit in the following ways: $500 Cash Award Increased visibility of artist’s name and artwork through: Press announcements Highlighted on MAP and DPOB’s websites Artwork will be featured on the cover of the 2016 ‘Downtown for the Holidays’ guide, with a distribution of 170,000 Acknowledgement at the Monument Lighting on December 1st, 2016
