Google Application Form Full Prospectus 

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is thrilled to partner with N2K Networks again this year to solicit the replication, reproduction and acquisition of a work of art indicative of “Creating Connections” and cybersecurity. MAP is working with N2K to offer a unique opportunity to female and female identifying visual artists of the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Collectively, MAP and N2K wish to acquire and license the image of a work of art. The image of that artwork will be reproduced in a limited edition and presented to the guests of N2K’s 2023 Women in Cybersecurity event to be held on October 19, 2023 at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC.

ABOUT “CREATING CONNECTIONS”: We live in a time where cyberspace has become inextricably linked to the lives of individuals and organizations of all kinds. Cyberspace is the medium of global commerce and communication, and it is one of the most important factors in the social, political, and technological changes we see occurring today. N2K provides concise and relevant daily briefings and podcasts on the critical news happening across the global cybersecurity domain. In an industry overloaded with information, we also help individuals and organizations rapidly find the news and information that's important to them.The aim of N2K’s reception is to facilitate connections among women working in cybersecurity, and N2K would like to acquire a work of art that reflects the theme of “creating connections.” Inherent in the idea of connections is the idea of networks—social networks, computer networks and support networks—which may be an important point of departure for acquired or commissioned work. This opportunity is open to women and women-identifying artists living and working in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. 

The selected artist(s) will be joining a wonderful roster of artists as this program has developed over the last decade. They are: Claire Girodie (year 14’), Anna and Caroline Zellhofer (year 15’), Lindsey McCulloch (year 16’), Carmen Martini (year 17’), and Shanthi Chandrasekar (year 18’), Jackie Hoystead (19’), and Marica Wolfson-Ray (22’). Note: there was a break in this program due to Covid-19.
