Howard County, Maryland desires to secure the professional services of qualified artists for the purpose of commissioning up to three artworks to be installed at its new Circuit Courthouse, which is currently being designed by Edgemoor-Star America Judicial Partners (ESJP). Permanent public interior and exterior Artwork pieces are planned.
The Howard County Arts Council will serve as one of the art advisors for the selection process. Selected artists will contract directly with the County and work with the public art project team to oversee all aspects of the artwork from design through project implementation, fabrication and installation.
All professional artists in the United States may apply. Additionally, to be considered for this commission the artist must meet at least three of the following four criteria: 1) has completed public art commissions; 2) has received awards, grants or fellowships; 3) has had work exhibited in museums or galleries; and 4) has demonstrated artistic merit, excellence and innovation through past work.
County funding for this artworks project will not exceed $460,000.
