Artists' Opportunities

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is happy to announce three separate opportunities for artists working in the DC, Maryland and Virginia region. 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, Harbor East Management Group, Neighborhood Design Center (NDC) and Art Lives Here.

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 October 29th, 2014.  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.)  

Window Wonderland, a Holiday Arts Exhibit at Harbor East, is in its third year and is seeking unique, holiday presentations/installations for the participating retail locations within the Harbor East corridor.  Selected artists will receive a $500 honorarium from Harbor East.  During the unveiling, a jury consisting of Cara Ober, artist and Founder/Owner of BMoreArt, Priya Bhayana, Director Bromo Arts District, and Jessica Bizik, Editor in Chief of Baltimore Style Magazine will announce the “Best in Show” window installation, and this artist or artist collective will receive a $1,000 cash prize from Harbor East!

MAP, in partnership with Neighborhood Design Center (NDC) and Art Lives Here, are seeking proposals for a fall, 2014 IMPACT project at the former Northeastern Supply building lot in Brentwood, Maryland.  Proposed projects should engage community participation either before or during the life-span of the work.  Artists should seek to create a re-envisioned public space incorporating the use of contemporary fine art and design practices. The selected artist/artist team will receive a stipend up to $6,000 for the completion of this work.
