Call for Artists: Maryland District Court Catonsville District Courthouse




District Court of Maryland for Baltimore County (Catonsville)
The Maryland Department of General Services (DGS) has completed construction on a state-of-the-art District Court of Maryland facility located in Catonsville, MD, at 1 Rolling Cross Road, near Interstate I-70/I-695. The new Catonsville District Courthouse serves the public and is home to the District Court of Maryland, and other court-related agencies that serve the public.

A budget of $300,000 has been identified to commission new public artwork that will be incorporated throughout the new District Courthouse. The commissioned artworks will be reflective of the themes and goals described in the artist call and located in publicly accessible areas of the new facility. The artist selection process and artwork implementation will be co-administered between DGS and the Maryland State Arts Council.

Commissioned Public Artwork Opportunities
The Artist Selection Committee has identified three distinct locations for artwork to be incorporated into the most public accessible areas of the Courthouse property. On the Courthouse exterior, a literary artist will be commissioned to create a site-specific piece of writing or poetry that will be engraved into the stones along the entrance walkways; and two interior locations have been set aside for unique visual artworks: the Entry Lobby Wall, and the Second Floor Hallway.

Each location has its own specifications and budget, described in the artist call.
