Catonsville Arts District — Public Art Master Plan Session
September 9, 2022, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Location: Forum by Thomas Sayre
The Catonsville Arts District, located near the UMBC campus, is engaged in the development of a public art master plan. The district has engaged the services of nationally-recognized public art consultants Art Builds Community, who will host a listening session for the campus community on Friday, September 9, 12 noon, at the large sculpture in front of the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, Forum by Thomas Sayre.
This community-led, professionally guided process will result in a comprehensive public art master plan, a document that will: 1) identify and prioritize key sites and themes where the public can engage with history, community, and art in new and surprising forms; 2) create a process for the selection of incomparable art; and 3) identify design concepts for unique wayfinding markers and interactive components of public art that will engage participants in the stories of Catonsville.
The goal of the plan is to harness the power of placemaking through the creation of a destination-grade cultural district.
