The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City PUBLIC ART PRIZE: Call for Entries

Application deadline – Friday, September 30, 2016

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA) is proud to announce the first edition of the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City Public Art Prize, sponsored by the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City (MASOB). The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore was founded in 1899 as part of the City Beautiful movement. It is one of only two remaining societies to be operating under its original charter “to provide sculptural and pictorial decoration and ornaments for the public buildings, streets and open spaces in the City of Baltimore, and to help generally beautify the City.” Artistic contributions to the City span more than one hundred years. In 2016 the MASOB embarks on a path to provide new opportunities to Baltimore artists and art places within the City. This prize will award $30,000 to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators, living and working within 100 miles of Baltimore City.

Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts and the City of Baltimore solicit proposals for the FY2017 National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Our Town grant program. Due date for proposals: August 29, 2016

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Our Town grant program supports creative placemaking projects that help to transform communities into lively, beautiful, and resilient places with the arts at their core. Creative placemaking is when artists, arts organizations, and community development practitioners deliberately integrate arts and culture into community revitalization work – placing arts at the table with land-use, transportation, economic development, education, housing, infrastructure, and public safety strategies. This funding supports local efforts to enhance quality of life and opportunity for existing residents, increase creative activity, and create a distinct sense of place.
