The Howard County Arts Council (HCAC) is seeking up to 12 artists to participate in its Ninth Annual Juried Public Art Competition for a temporary outdoor exhibit from August 2021-July 2022. HCAC’s goal is to make art more accessible to the entire community by placing sculpture at sites throughout Howard County, Maryland. The sculpture will serve as major visual anchor points that will enhance and activate community spaces and generate interest in public art.

HCAC will provide up to 12 artists with a $3,000 grant to cover the temporary loan, insurance, installation, de-installation, and repairs to the sculpture. If multiple pieces are selected from one artist, a separate grant will be awarded for each piece.

For prospectus and application, visit All application materials must be submitted online or delivered to Howard County Arts Council by 11:59PM, February 26, 2021.
