MARYLAND ART PLACE ANNOUNCES OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL ARTISTS.

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is happy to announce two separate opportunities for artists working in Baltimore and Maryland. Each project presents an opportunity to receive either a cash reward or stipend. MAP is excited to make these opportunities available through valued partnerships with CyberPoint International and Green Spring Station.

In partnership with CyberPoint International, MAP is releasing an opportunity specifically geared towards female artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and CyberPoint wish to commission a new work of art, as well as license the image of that new work of art, offering $750 in compensation for the original work and license. The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of CyberPoint’s Women in Cyber Security reception on November 19, 2015. The reception is meant to facilitate connections between women working in cyber security with the work embodying the theme of “creating connections” (social networks, computer networks, support networks.)

MAP, in partnership Green Spring Station, are seeking proposals for a fall, 2015 IMPACT project at Green Spring Station for a Maryland based artist or team of artists to create an original temporary indoor installation comprised of items from the merchants of Green Spring Station. The selected artist/artist team will receive a $1,000 stipend to cover the cost of materials and labor. Green Spring Station is a mixed-use center featuring Baltimore’s largest collection of locally-owned boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

For details, deadlines and applications artists should visit MAP’s website at www.mdartplace.org.

For questions please contact Paul Shortt at paul@mdartplace.org

MAP first and foremost serves living, emerging and mid-career artists with the understanding that the organization plays a key and critical role in providing a platform for personal and professional artistic growth within the contemporary, visual, fine arts realm. This is achieved through annual programming such as exhibitions, events, public art and speaking engagements; the promotion of artwork sales outside that of a commercial gallery; the creation of income-generating opportunities for artists; and MAP’s work through the Maryland State Artist Registry and Resource Bulletin.
