The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is now accepting applications for the 2016 PNC Transformative Art Prize! The award grants up to $30,000 to Baltimore City community groups to enliven their underutilized public spaces through high-impact, community-driven public art projects. For 2016, the PNC Transformative Art Prize will build on the momentum and energy of the inaugural Light City Baltimore festival (March 28-April 3) and invite proposals for outdoor lighting and projection works of art. Community groups are asked to partner with artists and/or arts organizations to propose and design a transformative art concept for their neighborhood.
The application and guidelines are available at www.promotionandarts.org/grants. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 4pm. Award winners are notified on March 15, 2016. The 2016 PNC Transformative Art Prize is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts made possible through a partnership with PNC Bank and the Baltimore City Department of Housing and Community Development.
In 2015, five prizes were awarded. The recipients were Baltimore Clayworks, Collective Minds, Force, Section 1 and Southeast Community Development Corporation.
