The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and the Baltimore Office of Sustainability welcome proposals from artists, communities, and farmers for the creation of temporary public art projects on and around pre-existing hoop houses within the Baltimore City limits. This program is in partnership with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s Growing Green Initiative, a City-led effort to use sustainable, innovative, and cost-effective practices for stabilizing and holding land for redevelopment, and reusing vacant land to green neighborhoods, reduce stormwater runoff, grow food, and create community spaces.
The Hoop House Public Art Microgrants are designed to:
- Enhance the visual impact of existing hoop house structures
- Draw attention to affordable urban agriculture practices in Baltimore
- Serve as a springboard for dialogue between community residents hosting hoop houses in their neighborhoods and the urban farmers who harvest from them.
Winning proposals will be eligible for microgrants of up to $1,000.
