The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program, through the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) announces an $80,000 competition to commission a site-specific artwork for the new City Archives facility. This commission is part of the $4 million City Archive relocation project by the City of Philadelphia Department of Records.
The City Archives serves as the permanent repository for the City’s extensive collection of local historical and cultural records. The enormous collection uniquely documents Philadelphia’s history through objects, documents, rare maps, photographs, architectural plans, tax records, and much more. Some treasures of the collection include: the original 1701 William Penn City of Philadelphia Charter; the first volume of the City Council Minutes, from 1704; original signatures of Benjamin Franklin; and a variety of documents, maps, and images dating from the 18th century.

2016 Artist Travel Prize recipient Stephen Towns
Application deadline – Monday, July 31, 2017
The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA) is proud to announce the second edition of the Municipal Art Society of Baltimore City Artist Travel 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 embarked on a path to provide new opportunities to Baltimore artists and art places within the City. This prize will award $6,000 to a visual artist or visual artist collaborators, living in Baltimore City. Successful proposals will be selected from submissions that clearly articulate the artist’s reason for travel and how it relates to their work, along with support materials. The $6,000 prize is intended to function as funding for travel essential to an artist’s studio practice that an artist may not otherwise be able to afford.
