The link for interested professionals to serve on the Public Art Commission is now available on the BOPA website. You can access the application directly here.

Members of the Public Art Commission serve as advisors and determine whether and to what extent artwork is appropriate for a particular construction project; oversee selection of artists and artwork for a particular project, determine submission requirements for public art proposals or qualifications, and review and determine allocation of eligible funds for the creation of artwork; the maintenance of existing artwork; and the performance of the Commission’s other functions and duties (as described in the City of Baltimore Public Art Guidelines).
