The Howard County Arts Council (HCAC), located in Ellicott City, Maryland, is seeking up to 12 artists to participate in its Eighth Annual Juried Public Art Competition for a temporary outdoor exhibit from August 2019-July 2020. HCAC’s goal is to make art more accessible to the entire community by placing sculpture at sites throughout Howard County, Maryland. The sculpture will serve as major visual anchor points that will enhance and activate community spaces and generate interest in public art.
HCAC will provide up to 12 artists with a $2,500 grant to cover the temporary loan, insurance, installation, de-installation, and repairs to the sculpture. If multiple pieces are selected from one artist a separate grant will be awarded for each piece.
Deadline to apply: March 1, 2019.
