The Maryland State Arts Council and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) are now accepting applications for the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building public art project. Artists residing in the United States are eligible to apply. The permanent public artwork will be two-dimensional, integrated on three large interior walls viewable from the first and second floors in the main hallway – student commons area.
The artwork Concept Design Development fee is $20,000. The artwork project budget is $180,000.
