MSAC's Public Art Across Maryland Program promotes and supports the inclusion of art in the everyday experiences of Marylanders.
What is Public Art? It can be work of any kind in any media, indoors or outdoors, temporary or permanent, free and accessible, that engages the community who will experience the work. Through direct commissions, grants, technical assistance, and professional development we support those planning, making, and caring for art in public spaces across the state.
In Fiscal Year 2023 only, the New Artworks grants increase to awards of up to $50,000. Artists and organizations, if you’ve been thinking about creating public art in your community, do apply!
MSAC offers information on how to apply for projects, technical guidance, and professional development resources for artists and organizations planning, commissioning and creating public art. Click here for more information.
